      Hi Mark,

      I have the same problem. I can get the Re-enactor Registration general information but the link to the actual registration form doesn't work for me either. Do you need to do something to set it to be accessible outside of Canada?

      The Battle of the Thames registration page is now operational. Please go to www.battleofthethames.ca and click on "Re-enactor Registration". The 're-enactor information' and 're-enactor registration' pages will pop up.
      Simply click on 'registration' and a word document will open. Simply fill it in and return via email or snail mail to <mailto:mailto:registration%40battleofthethames.ca> mailto:registration%40battleofthethames.ca

      Historic Merchants please click on "Vendors" and a 'period vendors' tab will come up. Please fill out the form and send it to our beloved Susan Spencer.

      All participants need to register and sign in when they arrive in order to be covered by the insurance policy due to the fact that we have horses on site and participating in the battle.

      The Battle of the Thames is going to be at 14376 Longwoods Road near Thamesville, Ontario.

      Raw food will be provided for units to cook on their own.


      Thursday Oct 3rd- Set up day for all merchants and re-enactors who wish to be onsite for Friday.

      Friday Oct 4th is Education Day. Please do not arrive and try to set up while the kids are on site.

      Saturday Oct 5th- BATTLE OF THE THAMES and the BALL AT THE FORKES

      Sunday Oct 6th- NO public in attendance, re-enactor only battle and commemoration services.

      The Battle of the Thames is going to try and duplicate the original battle as reasonably accurate as possible. If the artillery units would be willing to participate as either British or American militia, then that would be great as no artillery was used during the original battle. Also, if as many people as possible are willing to dress as US militia or regulars, that will also help. Harrison had about 3500 troops (2300 militia), Tecumseh had roughly 500 followers left, and Procter had about 800 regulars. I would really like to impress to the public just how outnumbered the 41st Regiment and Tecumseh's followers were.

      On Sunday everybody can go back to their original units to participate in the "re-enactor only" cross country battle. This will be travelling across fields, forests and streams with a very loose script, much like Maryland was a few years ago. Sunday IS NOT open to the public.

      Saturday night is the Ball at the Forkes. There is a supper, period dance and late night buffet with free bussing to and from the dance. It is going to be held at the historic Essex and Kent Regimental Armoury in Chatham. It is open to everybody. The FIRST 100 PEOPLE TO REGISTER will receive free tickets to the dance and late night buffet. After that the cost is $30. If you want to attend the supper, the cost is $55 for everything. Please indicate your choice on the registration form.

      All these details are in the re-enactor information page or contact me directly with questions.
