Flagg Creek Bridge, Mariatown, Ontario, Canada

Flagg Creek Bridge Two | N 44.52.18 W 75.14.26 | Mariatown, Ontario, Canada




The submerged Highway No 2 bridge over Flagg Creek between Mariatown and Morrisburg, Ontario. Lying only 250 metres from a culvert now carrying Flagg Creek under County Road 4, the old bridge – quite intact, but underwater – still carries the King’s Highway No 2 over the Flagg Creek bottom.

This location where Flagg Creek meets the St Lawrence River is where the largest ever hostile military force to attack Canada was camped before the Battle of Crysler’s Farm in 1813. The Americans were defeated by a much smaller force of British Army regulars, Mohawk warriors and local militia. This together with the British victory at the Battle of the Chateauguay in Quebec prevented the American takeover of Montreal and helped set the modern boundary between Canada and the United States.
