Major-General Sir Isaac Brock (1769 – October 13, 1812) was the British major-general who was assigned to the Canadian colonies during the War of 1812 and played a key role in the colonies' successful defence in the early phase of the war.
Brock was later killed at the Battle of Queenston Heights on October 13, 1812, but his initial gains against the Americans largely stood, and Detroit and much of Michigan were still in British hands at the end of the war when the Treaty of Ghent restored the prewar borders.
Brock mistrusted the Canadian colonists, many of whom he suspected of being American sympathizers, and was reluctant to arm them to help defend the colonies; he was far happier fighting alongside British regulars and Tecumseh's native fighters.
