The Old Fort: Siege of Fort Wayne 1812
Siege of Ft. Wayne 1812
Date: June 9th thru June 10th, 2018
The city of Fort Wayne played a critical role in our countrys history. This weekend, the Old Fort will recreate the events of the historic Siege of Fort Wayne during the War of 1812. The clash of American forces against the Natives, sponsored by the British, decided the fate of the last US outpost on the frontier. Had Fort Wayne fallen, Great Britain would have controlled the entire western border of the United States. The weekend will include battle reenactments, period artisans, demonstrations, and childrens activities.
All of our events are open to the public during the hours listed. Unless specifically noted, all events are free. Donations are gratefully accepted!
