The War of 1812 on the Niagara Frontier: A Battlefield Tour Presented by the Laurier Centre for Military, Strategic and Disarmament Studies, Sunday 27 May 2012
The tour will include visits to Fort George, Queenston Heights and Fort Erie. These are the most prominent sites both in the events of 1812-1814 and in commemoration of the war to the present day. Terry Copp, director of the Laurier Centre and a leader in battlefield and war and memory studies, will be the facilitator.
The cost, $45 per person, includes transportation by motor coach, sandwich lunch, and admission fees to the sites.
We will be departing from the Laurier Centre, 232 King Street North, Waterloo, at 9 am and returning at approximately 6.30 pm, Sunday 27 May 2012.
If numbers warrant, we will organize a group dinner (cost not covered by the tour package) in Waterloo to follow the tour.
Registration is required by 5 pm EST, Wednesday 23 May to allow arrangements for coach transport and lunches.
