“Remember the Raisin” Anniversary The Battle of River Raisin
The Battle of River Raisin marked the culmination of the American campaign to take Fort Detroit and invade Canada in late 1812 and early 1813. Although the conflict ended in the defeat and massacre of the Americans, the battle ultimately served to outrage Americans and revitalize support for the war across the nation. "Remember the Raisin" became a rallying cry among soldiers for the remainder of the war.
