By on 2

History lovers and all those fascinated by the War of 1812 enjoyed the recent collaborative experience at Niagara on the Lake, created by Parks Canada and the Directorate of Naval History and Heritage of the Royal Canadian Navy.  A naval re-enactment that involved a flotilla of 20 period vessels including five tall ships (four brigantines and a schooner-1812 Squadron) and 22 longboats with 300 naval and military re-enactors, the event included both a naval encampment at Navy Hall open to the public during the day and a military encampment at Fort George at night.

This exciting War of 1812 celebration event drew hundreds of visitors from across the province.  For more information on other similar 1812 events, be sure to visit www.naturallyinniagara.ca regularly!
