Lundy’s Lane Battlefield Cemetery

Posted by on Aug 29, 2011

History is told, felt, and re-lived around the world, but not everyone can say that history occured in their own backyard; Niagara Falls can. Niagara Falls is filled with famous heroes and heroines that fought for many of the things that we take for granted. And what a better place to pay our respects then to walk through the Lundy’s Lane Battlefield Cemetery.

Hayley and I spent a good hour walking around and taking pictures within the cemetery itself. It bothered us not being able to read some of the stones, but erosion had worn them down. We knew that at one point in time those stones carried the names of many heroes throughout the region and around the world that took part in one of the bloodiest wars in Canadian history.

Having the love of history that I do I could have stayed longer, but the day was coming to an end. I am very lucky to have taken this walk through history, even if it was just for a short while. After all, you can’t know who you are until you know where you’ve been. So, if your looking for things to do in Niagara Falls, this is one of the historical landmarks you should check out!
