Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The newest 25-cent circulation coin commemorating the heroes of the War of 1812 features the Hero of Châteauguay; Lieutenant Colonel Charles-Michel de Salaberry. Lieutenant Colonel Charles-Michel de Salaberry served as an officer of the British army in Lower Canada (now Quebec).  As war loomed in the spring of 1812, he helped raise a unit of militia corps, known as the Canadian Voltigeurs, from among his primarily French Canadian compatriots. These new forces would help defend Lower Canada against the imminent attack. He is best known for the Battle of Châteauguay in October of 1813, where about 1,700 Canadians helped repel around 3,000 American troops and Montreal was saved from a large-scale attack.
