Not Much Actually Happened DURING 1812

If you put the name of the War of 1812 aside, not much actually happened during 1812.

1 - Most of the fighting took place in 1813.

2 - The peace treaty was ratified in 1814.

3 - The deciding battle was fought in 1815.

So, be prepared to stretch this War of 1812 Bicentennial Commemoration out for a while. 

That means you still have lots of time to borrow the Seaway Trail War of 1812 traveling quilt exhibit if you have a suitable venue that would be interested in the display.

Last weekend the exhibit was hung in the Anglican Christ Church - on site at Upper Canada Village.  The exhibit has now traveled to Fort Wellington in Prescott where it will be on display June 29 thru July 1. 

Send me an email if your interested in borrowing it and we will look at the travel schedule.
