1812 War Society (UK)

Post by Ian Harbottle »

The 1812 War Society (UK) aims to recreate the events and conflicts of the Anglo-American War of 1812 through living history displays and battle re-enactment skirmishes. The society was formed in late 2009 with the intention of depicting the engagements of the 1812 war, especially for the 2012 bi-centennial anniversary events and beyond.

We are currently recruiting for both the American Brigade and the Crown Forces Brigade. In addition we are putting together a bi-partisan brigade that will be composed of naval and native units.

If anyone is interested please get in touch with us through this forum or via our website.

Hi Ben,

We are just in the process of confirming 2011 events now and should be ready to post them up soon.


Hi Stanley,

You would be more than welcome to come along and play in any guise you feel comfortable in. Though we are in need of more people for the American side so any help there would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Ian.

Hi Steve,
the american militia thing, if its the one that Brett is sorting, is for the AWI (american revolutianory war) 1775-1780, so is a different time era to this one.
I think the idea is to portray the Lexington minutemen, who saw action in some of the early engagements in that war.
if its different my apologies....

Some of the same people,But different..(Reminds me,must mention it to Brett).....I plan to be doing his AWI militia at Kelmarsh...But the 1812 stuff came out of a conversation about the anniversary of New Orleans........
