About Stamp

Charles-Michel d'Irumberry de Salaberry was born in 1778 at Beauport, Quebec. Commissioned in the British Army in 1794, he campaigned overseas and returned to Lower Canada in 1810. In 1812 de Salaberry raised a provincial corps of light infantry or voltigeurs. He and these Canadian Voltigeurs saw action at the Battle of Lacolle in November 1812. They and 300 Caughnawaga Indians repulsed the advance guard of an American army of 6,000, causing the entire army to retreat. De Salaberry's most famous victory came at the battle of Châteauguay in 1813 when, though vastly outnumbered, he repulsed an American contingent attempting to seize Montreal. The de Salaberry stamp was designed by Theo Dimson who has chosen to show the man in a traditional silhouette profile.
