Re: [WarOf1812] Re: Battle of the Thames (Ft Niagara-Leo Creek)
- Yes, there has been a re-enactment scheduled in Chatham for the weekend before Mississinewa since the early about 1990. In fact it is this week end. Sat features Tecumseh's stand at McGregor's Creek and Sunday is the Battle of the Thames/ the Death of Tecumseh and the US forces get to "burn" the village. Friday is education day with at least 4000 local children. Once aain I am am organizing the battles so of course they will be great. :)
Hope to see everybody there.

Thanks for considering rescheduling the event. I believe that Chatham
Ontario has an event on that date.
