General Vincent was in command of the Niagara area when
the United States attacked in the spring of 1813. He was
defeated at the Battle of Fort George but as able to rebound
and establish the new lines at Burlington. He directed
the campaign during the summer and fall that eventually
forced American forces to abandon the Niagara area in
December 1813. Vincent was replaced by General
Rial late in the year due to illness.
