locality in S Ontario just W of the Niagara Falls, scene of a stubborn engagement of the War of 1812, fought July 25, 1814. The American forces commanded by Gen. Winfield Scott and led by Gen. Jacob J. Brown, pushing into Canada, encountered British troops posted along Lundy's Lane. After prolonged fighting, the Americans fell back to Fort Erie, their former position. They had gained no advantage but had shown themselves able to hold a superior enemy force. There were heavy casualties on both sides.
