This is a reminder to those loyal and new to the Battle of Longwoods event (near Delaware, Ontario, Canada). The event this year has been placed on hold to allow for Fort Meigs to hold their 200th annivesary event closest to the original date.
Therefore Longwoods will be back in 2014 with our 200th annivesary event on March 8th, 2014. This event will feature a memorial service followed by a reenactment on the original battle site (along Hwy 2). Members of the current US and Canadain armed forces are set to help commemorate this event. A memorial plaque sponsored by the UTMRS will be unveiled, and will list the names killed in the battle from both sides. More information on this event will follow regarding dates and times and accomdations available.
On May 2-4th, 2014 will resume the Battle of Longwoods weekend at the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Area just west of Delaware on the Longwoods Road. This event will feature the usual event with some modified battles.
Thanks for all your support and see you hopefully in 2014.
