War of 1812 Re-enacting
The 1st Kentucky Rifle Regiment Site- Kentucky was the most avid participant in the War of 1812. The 1st Kentucky, Captain Hickman's Company, fought at the River Raisin. In a rare bit of good fortune, their appearance was thoroughly described by their British opponents. This site contains historical information about the original regiment from the War of 1812, specifically Captain Hickman's Company. In addition, it has pictures, yearly calendar, unit members and other information about the re-enacting unit portraying Hickman's Company.
The 3rd York Rifle Company Site- The British and Canadians had far fewer rifle units than the Americans. One company of the 3rd York (present day Toronto) militia was designated a rifle company and commanded by Captain Robinson. This unit fought throughout the war and ranged from Detroit to Niagara to York and then to the north. This site contains historical information and documents about Captain Robinson's Rifle Company of the 3rd York Militia from the War of 1812. In addition, there are pictures, etc. about the re-enacting unit portraying Robinson's Company. Some of the re-enactors have ancestors in the original unit. Note: We spend the majority of time as the 1st Kentucky Rifles due to the usual serious lack of American forces at most events.....
