America. It is still possible to join a group, put a uniform or clothing
together, and attend some of the bigger events in the east. There are
people from Winnipeg, New Orleans, and California that regularly attend
events in the Great Lakes region. As an added bonus, you can spend a few
days doing vacation stuff as well. I know that Westjet regularly has seat
sales between Calgary and Toronto.

Subject: 1812 Introduction
Good afternoon everyone.
My name is Anne. I was born in St. Catharines and upon seeing brock's
Monument on a school field trip in Grade One, I was immediately smitten with
the War of 1812.
I live in Alberta, where unfortunately, the closest we get to living history
is the SCA, which, while fun, isn't always as accurate as I would like. I
joined this group hoping to follow the plans of the re-enactors who will be
providing eye candy for the events on Queenston Heights in 2012.
Thank you for your time!

We portray the Canadian Fencibles c. 1814-16 and perform in daily music and artillery demonstrations throughout July and August. I began volunteering at Fort York at age 9 and have been employed for the past couple of summers. I couldn't ask for a better summer job.

Our sixty-second "Heritage Minute" dramatizes the winter march of the 104th Regiment in 1813. I used the wartime diary of Lieutenant John Le Couteur as the basis for the script.
