Laura Secord - The Paul Revere of Canada
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Laura Ingersoll Secord was born in Massachusetts in 1775, but in her heart, she was all Canadian. The Ingersolls stayed in Massachusetts until 1795. A weak economy in the United States and the lure of cheap land in Upper Canada encouraged Laura's father to move.
 
2     Two years after moving north, Laura married James Secord. Between raising five children and running a successful shop, their lives were full.
 
3     Then in 1812, the Americans declared war on the British and attacked Upper Canada. In the fall of that year during the Battle of Queenston Heights, James was injured. With a shattered leg, he was still recuperating during the next spring when the Americans occupied that area of Niagara.
 
4     Most of the men were sent to the States as prisoners of war, but James was not. Instead, the Secords kept three American officers in their home.
