The History of the Battle of Longwoods
The first weekend in May, at the Longwoods Road Conservation Area, you can experience history being brought to life. Every year, the Upper Thames Military Re-enactment Society presents the Battle of Longwoods.
Step back in time to March 4, 1814, as British troops attempt to expel American invaders. Hear the crack of the musket and the roar of the cannon. Come and experience life in the early 19th century. See the colourful clothing, smell the food prepared over open fires, and let us entertain your family for the day.
