The "Second Siege" of Fort Meigs
In the meantime, I'll leave you with a question. The second attack on the fort is most often described as the "second siege", but British Major General Henry Procter had no heavy artillery, dug no entrenchments, and only half-hardheartedly cordoned off the garrison from outside help. Thus, I've heard the attack described as an "investment". But the term investment is not very catchy. What would you call Procter's second expedition to the Maumee River?
