This is a photograph of an old stone memorial marking a mass grave on the grounds of Old Fort Erie. This monument was erected in 1904. Carved in Latin words around the tower mentions - Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori (It is sweet and glorious to die for one's country). On August 26, 1814, during the siege of Fort Erie, one-hundred and fifty officers lost their lives and were buried on site. This shrine serves as a reminder of those soldiers who fought here almost two centuries ago.
