Battle of York Day

Battle of York Commemoration at historic Fort York. Soldiers of the Fort York Guard, the Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada and the 22nd US Infantry did some artillery and drill demonstrations and shot off some muskets.

During the War of 1812 the American's decided to invade Canada. While they won a few battles, including the capture of York, both sides eventually allowed the stalemate to come to a peaceful conclusion.

It only costs $8 (adult) to come into the Fort and while the crowds were sparse the drills and musket and cannon fire were impressive.
