"During the campaign of 1814 and particularly in the battle at Niagara Falls, Lieutenant Fisher merited more than he rec'd -- it was his peculiar good fortune to rescue the colours of one of our Regiments (but not those of the ninth, for they were in no danger) from falling into the hands of the enemy...".
