The Battle of Stoney Creek 2015

Travel back in time to the War of 1812 and watch 19th century British and Canadian soldiers duke it out with our neighbours to the south in Battlefield House Museum and Park. We must have done okay because they thought we can't make an Upper Canada without a you and me, so they decided to add a 'u' into a lot of words that 'Murica uses as well - that's how you tell us apart.
The re-enactment in the National Historic Site in Stoney Creek shows both the battlefield and the settlements that people created around the army. "Visit the encampment and mingle with early 19th century settlers and soldiers as they go about their daily life. Shop among one-of-a-kind merchants. Witness historical demonstrations of cooking, dancing, blacksmithing and more. Enjoy food, games and musical entertainment. Wander through the original 200 year old Gage homestead."
