Despite the legend arising around Lieutenant Colonel Charles de Salaberry and the Battle of Châteauguay, including the assertion that 300 Canadians had forced the retreat of 7,000 Americans, the significance of that battle and de Salaberry’s role in it remain indisputable despite historical exaggeration. The actions and heroism of de Salaberry and the Voltigeurs remain key moments in the War of 1812.
