The 60-page hardcover Battle of Queenston Heights souvenir
book has been completed! This book captures the event from
the U.S. side perspective, and has been compiled as a guide
to the organizers of the TriCentennial -- 100 years from now.
Included are many great photos and flattering comments from
reenactors who said they thoroughly enjoyed the best hospitality
they've ever experienced.
Overall, a great event on both sides -- and a tribute to the
volunteer reenactors and organizers who made it happen.

P.S. One of the interesting aspects of the events that hasn't
been discussed much was the transportation of the reenactors
across the border. Volunteer organizers worked for months
with Customs on both sides of the border to assure a smooth
and quick crossing. When the 140 U.S. reenactors arrived
at the Canadian border, all with muskets, all five buses were
cleared in 7 minutes.
Not to be outdone, when the reenactors returned, U.S.
Customs cleared the buses in 5 minutes and 10 seconds!
THANK YOU to Customs on both sides of the border for your
support and cooperation for this bi-national event!
