War of 1812 Re-enactment


Two hundred years ago, on March 4, 1814, British troops clashed with American invaders in the Battle of Longwoods. Each spring a group of historians get together to re-enact this battle.  Come out and watch them in their colourful dress, hear the muskets and cannons fire and smell the gunpowder in the air.
