Greetings from Fort William Historical Park,
Fort William Historical Park invites you to volunteer at the Battle of Fort William historical re-enactment on August 17-18, 2019.
Located in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, Fort William Historical Park features Fort William, North America’s largest living history site dedicated to portraying the 19th century Canadian fur trade. An active trading post, visitors are able to broaden their appreciation of the partnerships between the Anglo-Scots, Indigenous Peoples and French-Canadians who built the fur trade, their roles in the development of our nation, and their heritage and cultures.
The Battle of Fort William brings to life the fictional scenario had American forces attacked Fort William in the summer of 1814 during the War of 1812. Come take part in the action as proud North West Company voyageurs and Indigenous warriors along with British regulars face off against American forces for the control of the North American interior. The weekend will include skirmishes, dramas, a battlefield surgery and a Grand Battle.
Courtesy indoor accommodations and historic tent camping will be provided on the historic site. Modern RV and tent campsites are also available by reservation. Please contact (807) 473-2344 for availability and pricing. There will also be a Volunteer Appreciation event on Saturday, August 17 at 6:00pm in the Great Hall.
