The story

Fire and Smoke – Andrew Westbrook was a muscular red-haired Delaware settler – a “giant of a man.” An American sympathizer, his capture by General Brock at Detroit in 1812 intensified his actions as a traitor and spy. On January 31, 1814, Westbrook invited his American allies to plunder his own property in Delaware. Then he gathered his wife, children and livestock together to watch as he torched their buildings.
