Sir Phineas Riall

British General
1775 -1850

As commander of British forces in the Niagara region, Sir Phineas Riall found himself - like so many other commanders in the War of 1812 - out of his depth.

He was brave enough - again no surprise - but his military talents were quickly found wanting.

Beaten at the battle of Chippewa, Riall retreated and found himself in a follow-up battle at Lundy's Lane. There he was wounded and then captured by the Americans.

In 1816, he was made Governor of the West Indies colony of Grenada.
