The Niagara campaign was the final campaign launched by the United Statesmarker to invade Canadamarker during the War of 1812. It occurred in 1814.

The Americanmarker forces were commanded by General Jacob Brown and General Winfield Scott.The U.S. forces began the campaign with the Capture of Fort Eriemarker on the Niagara Peninsulamarker.Next they decisively defeated the Britishmarker at the Battle of Chippawamarker.

At the Battle of Lundy's Lanemarker both sides claimed victory, but because the U.S. forces had suffered so many casualties they pulled back to Fort Eriemarker.Following their return to the fort, the British under Gordon Drummond attempted to capture the fort and the Siege of Fort Eriemarker followed.The Americans were able to hold out and the British eventually lifted the siege after suffering severe losses. After a small engagement at Cook's Millsmarker, American forces commanded by General George Izard abandoned Fort Erie and returned to the U.S. side.
