Is it true that in the only battle between America and Canada that Canada won ?

Well American Revolutionary forces against the Canadian British colony forces that is. During the American War of Independence the Canadian British colony was invaded but they beat off the Americans. To quote the person who told me about it in a previous question, "it successfully fought off an invasion by American forces".

No. Its not true. 1) As you already mentioned, it was still British forces since Canada was not a country. 2) It happened twice, again in the War of 1812, again it was British Forces though. Also of note, the British lost both of the wars.

The British colony of Canada was invaded by the US, the British successfully defended Canada, then invaded the US. The war ended with the successful defence of New Orleans...if that sounds like an American victory to you, you must have gone to American public school.

Nope. The British kicked our a*s for them. For all those Brits getting way too anti-American. It's a QUESTION; sheesh. Go drink some tea and babble about how great you think you are.

@mnb They were still Canadian regardless, so technically it was the Canadian British who won.
