War of 1812 Re-enactment

It is our 6th Annual rendezvous at the Crossroads of Dunvegan, where History 200 years in the making, comes to Life. Living History Re-enactors from across the province and the United States are pleased to once again return with their muskets, cannons and campfires to recreate the 1812-1814 conflict on the museum grounds. Check out the Fashion Show, take in an 1812 inspired church service, and tour the encampments of the British, Americans, Civilians, and Native Allies, all leading up to a pinnacle Battle that will be staged live daily. For something different, 1812 reproductions are available for sale to the public by our visiting Sutlers (merchants) .
