The article recalls the Battle on the Niagara Frontier in New York in 1812. It describes the war between the British and U.S. troops. After the U.S. declared war on Great Britain in June 1812, the Six Nations in Canada and the U.S. had an agreement to remain neutral in the war, with a provision that no Iroquois warrior would meet his brothers in battle. In July 1813, Iroquois joined the U.S. forces when the British threatened the U.S. Navy headquarters.
