1812 News

Jan. 4, 2013

Every August Fort Erie turns back the clock to revisit our past. Old Fort Erie hosts a weekend of history.

With the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 well under way the weekend Siege is bigger than ever. Thousands turned out to witness a period of turmoil that brought Great Britain, Canadians and Native warriors together to fight off an American attack.

Close to 600 re-enactors from across the country and the U.S. turned out to recreate the battle that took place at the Fort in 1814.

The Siege takes place every August but with the bicentennial running until 2015 this is the time to really bring the importance of this period to light.

Several events are planned for 2013 and will continue until 2015.
