Canadian Falls From Terrapin Point
Here , better than anywhere else, can be seen the angular Shape of the Canadian Fall. The process of erosian is clearly visible in the angle near the left of the fall, where the mighty onrush of the current has eaten away, bit by bit the flint-like substance of the precipiee. It is in this angle that the water, falling with the accumulated force upon a mass of rock half-way down the precipice, dashes itself back again as if in baffled rage at the obstacle. It is historic ground. a mile farther west, up the Niagara River but within sound of the mighty roar of the Cataract, was fought, ninety-three years ago, on the 25th day of July, 1814, The battle of Lundy's Lane, between the British and American forces.
