Lieutenant-Colonel John Campbell led some 800 American regulars and militia in a raid, which destroyed the communities of Dover and Ryerse's Mills and much of the surrounding countryside including farms and livestock. Official protests were lodged and the raid was subsequently condemned by a U.S. Army court of inquiry.
