Unfortunately tempers ran high after the British destroyed the magazine which resulted in American deaths after the battle was over. The resulting rampage by the Americans culminating April 30 and resulting in the burning of a good portion town, which, by the way, consisted of about 700 people. Hard to imagine.
In Toronto, the battle was marked on Saturday with parades and bands and by presence of Prince Philip.
Personally, I'm glad we kissed and made up.
