Event marks 200 years since War of 1812

WGRZ June 8, 2014


CHEEKTOWAGA, NY – Two hundred years ago, the War of 1812 was still going strong. In fact, U.S. forces were preparing to invade Canada and capture Fort Erie.

In Western New York today, bicentennial commemorations continued with this service in Cheektowaga’s War of 1812 cemetery.

The event included tributes to American and Canadian troops, a sign of the two centuries of peace along the border since the war ended in 1814.
