- Dec. 17th --Christmas at the RIVER RAISIN NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD PARK,
Saturday Dec. 17th, 11am-3pm. Join us for Christmas at the Battlefield and meet the 1st Kentucky Regiment of Volunteers for a glimpse of what life was like for the volunteer soldier spending Christmas out on the frontier. In December 1812 the Kentuckians had no idea that within a month they would be engaged in the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812 at the Battle of the River Raisin. The soldiers had to endure extreme temperatures, ice and snow, learn how they survived
In the meantime the soldier's families had to fend for themselves at home. Join the 1st Kentucky's families inside the Visitor's Center and learn about their traditions and experience period food.
