Brigadier-General Isaac Brock heard the news while he was dining with American officers at Fort George. They finished the dinner in peace then withdrew to plan mutual destruction.
“My situation is most critical…Most of the people have lost all confidence. I, however, speak loud and look big,” Brock wrote.
Today, we cannot lose confidence. Just as Sir Isaac did 200 years ago, we must “speak loud and look big.” Together, we can win this war, too.
