"Alexander Campbell MLA (1734-1800) was a member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) in Upper Canada, a business man and an army officer. Prior to leaving his home at Killin Scotland Alexander was commissioned as an officer in the 42nd Regiment of Foot (the Black Watch). He and his brothers, Moses (b. 1733) a sergeant, and James (b.1741) who were both with him in the Black Watch regiment when it landed at New York City in June 1756 were immediately dispatched to Albany New York to be trained in the art of bush fighting. Their first action in North America was in the summer of 1758, a tragic assault on the French fort at Ticonderoga. The Highlander failed to overcome the defenders and suffered 314 fatalities during the eight hour battle. Listed among the wounded was Lieutenant Alexander Campbell.
