Siege of Ft. Wayne 1812
Date: June 8th thru June 9th, 2019
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.
On-going demonstrations include: blacksmith, weaver, gunsmith, textiles, woodwright, toys and games tent, traditional music, mini-militia, Fort Guided Tours on the half-hour
