Laura Secord Monument



Laura Secord walked 32 kilometers and saved the day!

Laura Secord walked 32 kilometers (20 miles) to warn the British that the Americans were coming to surprise attack them during the War of 1812. Laura Secord legendary walk, done through treacherous swamps, forests and summer heat, was made more difficult, as Laura Secord took her cow (a smoke screen to trick the Americans she was trading for goods). Today her legacy lives on as a true hero for Canadians, especially women, as she continues to inspire them.
