Stoney Creek Music Video

Just one final post on the Battle of Stoney Creek!

Mark McNeil, a veteran journalist at The Hamilton Spectator and a talented singer-songwriter, wrote a wonderful song about the battle to mark its bicentennial. In this recently-posted video, he performs it against a backdrop of locations that you will recognize from my previous posts -- the Gage House, the Battlefield Monument, Smith's Knoll, the battle re-enactment field complete with re-enactors -- and even the actual trickling water of Stoney Creek!



Many thanks to Kay G. of Georgia Girl with an English Heart who found this video on YouTube and passed its link along to me!

Hey Debra!
I am very pleased that you liked this video as much as I did! The song describes the battle perfectly and I thought the video was perfect too, right down to the trickling water at the end!

Loved this video and the historical feel to it. Great voices and harmony and of course the flute or pipe. thanks for sharing, Debra!

OK, I totally admire their guts. I'd never dress up like that, let alone sing and post it on YouTube!
