      Fanshawe Pioneer Village would like to invite you to bring the War of
      1812 event to life at the 3rd and last Crown Forces event for 2007.
      The village is pulling out all the stops to create a most memorable
      event for re-enactors and an educational and enjoyable time for

      An open education field trip day on Friday, September 28 featuring
      displays, talks, demonstrations, sutlers and a battle skirmish

      Over 30 historic structures in an unspoiled environment allowing one
      to lose themselves in time

      Large battlefield area in excess of 20 acres to provide lots of room
      to move and engage opposing forces and deliver believable tactical
      scenarios with artillery ground charges

      Daily noon-time skirmishes featuring small craft naval engagements
      and beach landings on Fanshawe Lake

      Full Crown Forces regulation camp set up with American forces
      opposite a shared parade square

      Lunch provided Sat & Sun

      Café located on site to provide other meals/snacks/drinks

      Sutlers given priority for space within the village proper.
      Sutlers fees are $25 each. Prime space around the village green and
      business area is first come first served. Sutlers are needed and
      welcome to come early and set up in time for the education day, as
      they are an integral part of the day's fun and enjoyment.

      Volunteers are also asked to help out with displays and stations, or
      general help if they can

      Period dance Saturday evening with dance caller and licensed patio

      Set up anytime after 3pm Thursday, September 27

      Powder allowance for artillery units attending

      Modern conveniences of the city are but a short drive away for those
      in need - ICE is available at the village for a nominal charge

      The village becomes 1812 and staff take on persona to help shape out
      the weekend and bring public into the War of 1812

      Join the excitement and immerse yourself in the time period you
      love and enjoy each weekend. Come and experience Fanshawe 1812 for
      yourself and be a part of history. See the website for more details
