The story of the War of 1812 comes to life at Backus Heritage Conservation Area during the annual re-enactment event. More than 200 soldiers and settlers set up camp in the Heritage Village for this popular event.  Visitors can learn first-hand by talking with soldiers and civilians about what was happening in Upper Canada during the War. The weekend-long event includes: military and civilian encampments; cannon and musket firing; drills; a 1812 surgeon's station; demonstrations; children's mini militia and, Sutlers Row.
