    Whoops. I should have included the year! It must be my assumption that everyone knows that these battles occured in 1813. Thanks for noticing Ann. Ron Dale

      Hello Rachel,

      There are many exciting War of 1812 events planned in North America during the bicentennial.

      I am working on an event in the Niagara-Hamilton area along the shores of the Niagara River and Lake Ontario. It will be a 10-day long event with battle re-enactments on two successive weekends at Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake near Niagara Falls and Stoney Creek near Hamilton. The event will feature tall ships that will participate in the Battle of Fort George and then sail towards Stoney Creek, with any reenactors who can do so sailing aboard these vessels, stopping each afternoon to set up camp on shore.

      To date, the outline looks like this:

      Thursday May 23 Encampment at Fort George and Navy Hall begins

      Friday May 24 Education Day at Fort George and Navy Hall

      Saturday May 25 Naval Activities at Navy Hall;
      Major battle re-enactments and military activities at Fort George and Battlefield of Fort George

      Sunday May 26 Similar to Saturday

      Monday May 27 Memorial ceremonies, Battlefield of Fort George; Evening displays at Port Dalhousie for those reenactors (military and naval) able to participate

      Tuesday May 28 Memorial services, Hamilton and Scourge (sunken US warships) at Port Dalhousie; Evening displays Jordan Harbor

      Wednesday May 29 Memorial service for the Engagement at the Forty ; Evening displays in the Grimsby Harbor

      Thursday May 30 Sail to Hamilton Harbor

      Friday May 31 History in Action Day at Stoney Creek/Hamilton Harbor

      Saturday June 1 Reenactments and displays; Stoney Creek and Hamilton Harbor

      Sunday June 2 Reenactments and displays; Stoney Creek and Hamilton Harbor

      Food, firewood, staw, a powder allowance for guns and stipends to cover the cost of transporting vessels, artillery and horses will be provided.

          Rachel,
          The New Orleans commemorative and Gulf Campaign events will most certainly be
          fantastic and give you a great experience worthy of such a long trip. I would
          suggest also, however, that you consider one or more of the really great
          bicentennial events around Upper Canada and the Chesapeake Bay area that are
          going to happen as well.
          It would be awful to have a wonderful time at New Orleans alone realizing that
          you missed the others. Someone in the "know", hopefully, will be kind enough to
          give you an accurate prediction as to the number of participants expected for
          each in case that would be a consideration for your planning as well.

            I wonder if it is time for those of us on this list to begin to put together a list of events for the bicentennial years. In talking with several members, they have already started to indicate that there will be conflicts (mid-June, 2012, for example). Perhaps we could ask someone (*coughDavecough*) to start this list and sites could email them with their plans and links - many do this already for upcoming years, but we need to start thinking further ahead.
            I wonder too, if there's a way to seperate events by region - Great Lakes, Southern US, Chesepeake, St. Lawrence, for example. It would be very handy to be able to see all the events in the Great Lakes region for 2014 at a glance.

            Thanks,

            Chris McKay

              At the top link see Bicentennial and clicking that takes you to
              http://royal.scots.tripod.com/warof1812eventslist/id12.html

              If you have dates already in mind send them to me and they will be posted. Info on the event with details is good too. I usually post that information here. We've looked at another site for a calendar but the above site offers the simplicity of a list. Links are included when available.

              I'll take a look at putting the list into region listings as well.

                  On the calendar of events that I currently maintain, this (a listing of
                  bicentennial year events) is already in existence. :)
                  At the top link see Bicentennial and clicking that takes you to
                  http://royal.scots.tripod.com/warof1812eventslist/id12.html

                  If you have dates already in mind send them to me and they will be posted.
                  Info on the event with details is good too. I usually post that information
                  here. We've looked at another site for a calendar but the above site offers
                  the simplicity of a list. Links are included when available.

                  I'll take a look at putting the list into region listings as well.

                  Dave.

                  Re: War of 1812 events and bi-centennials- a question

                  I wonder if it is time for those of us on this list to begin to put together
                  a list of events for the bicentennial years. In talking with several
                  members, they have already started to indicate that there will be conflicts
                  (mid-June, 2012, for example). Perhaps we could ask someone
                  (*coughDavecough*) to start this list and sites could email them with their
                  plans and links - many do this already for upcoming years, but we need to
                  start thinking further ahead.
                  I wonder too, if there's a way to seperate events by region - Great Lakes,
                  Southern US, Chesepeake, St. Lawrence, for example. It would be very handy
                  to be able to see all the events in the Great Lakes region for 2014 at a
                  glance.

                    One other thing: I wonder if it would be advantageous to add a star, or bold the events that are actually Bicentennial events. For example, Longwoods on March 8th, 2014 could have a star, but the one in May 2014 is just another event. That way if there's a conflict, someone could quickly see which one is an anniversary event.

                    Thanks,

                    Chris
