Battle of York Bicentennial, 27 / 28 April 2013


April 27th, 2013 marked the Bicentennial of the American attack upon and occupation of the town of York (today Toronto), the capital of Upper Canada.  Members of the 7/60th donned uniforms of the 8th (King’s) Regiment, and alongside several hundred reenactors, modern day personnel of the Canadian Armed Forces, and 9,000 spectators, gathered together at historic Fort York in downtown Toronto to commemorate this key event in the War of 1812.

After staying overnight in the fort’s barracks, the group spent a gorgeous and productive Sunday hitting the parade square and honing its light infantry drills for the second year of 1812 Bicentennial events.

Pictures to follow soon!
