> 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.

Direct questions to me,
I would like to send out congratulations and a hearty thank you to the organizing committee for the Battle of the Thames on behalf of the 41st Regiment.
While we were not pleased with the role we had to play, we also realize that you cannot change history!
It really appeared that this had all the hallmarks of exceptional organization. The massive crowd on Saturday was a testament to that!
How fortunate that the weather held for Friday and Saturday and another example of the foresight of the committee was to have the fields planted with ground cover for the season so that even with the rain yesterday, everyone was able to get their vehicles in and out with ease.
I cannot begin to imagine how many hours went into organizing and running this event. Congratulations on a great outcome we really appreciate your hard work.
Your most humble and obedient Servant,
Tom Fournier, Captain
41st Regiment of Foot
