Destruction of the Steamboat Caroline

In December 1837, the British were infuriated that Americans were aiding the Canadian rebellion by supplying money, arms and provisions. The steam boat Caroline had been ferrying supplies to a group of Canadian patriots occupying Navy Island in the Niagara River. In retaliation, the British burned the Caroline. This early twentieth century print depicts the burning ship as it drifts over Niagara Falls.
