Laura Secord (September 13, 1775 – October 17, 1868) was a Canadian heroine of the War of 1812. She has often been called Canada's Paul Revere.

In May of 1813 the American army invaded again and the Secord home was forced to billet American officers. Laura became aware of plans for a surprise attack on British forces, she walked approximately 32 km to warn them. The British were ready and defeated the Americans. The story became a legend in Canada.
