After Gen. William Hull's surrender of Detroit in the War of 1812, he and the 4th US Infantry were marched to Montreal, Canada as prisoners of war.

I'm reliably informed a plaque was placed at the corner of Rue McGill and Rue Notre Dame to commemorate the prisoners' arrival.

Does anyone know if this plaque still exists?

I couldn't find the exact plaque you're referring to (at least i don't think so?) but here's a site with a great many plaques referenced with photos and categorized:

Donnabhain, Thanks very much for the information about Mr. Brown's excellent page on Ontario's Historical Plaques.

I'm a historical plaque nerd! Around here we have signs that say "Historical Marker Ahead" so I know when to keep an eye out Smile
