Upper Canada Militia

The Upper Canada Militia took part in the bloodiest battles of the War, especially during the Niagara campaign. There were various levels of service in the militia, from sedentary militia who wore mostly civilian clothes and turned out in time of crisis, to embodied militia who wore castoff regular uniforms, were trained by regulars to act as flankers, and served longer terms of service. The best militia formation was perhaps the Incorporated Militia Battalion of Upper Canada, who were selected from the embodied militiamen and guarded the British left flank at Lundy's Lane.

For variety, consider throwing in a few figures from the collection of packs under the "round hats" section of the catalog.
