Posted on Jun 27, 2012 | 0 comments

A re-enactment of the Flight of the Royal George will be taking place at Kingston and Bath this weekend.  The Royal George was a Kingston-built British warship that was pursued and attacked by an American naval squadron in Kingston harbour near the beginning of the war of 1812.

The event will feature five tall ships, 10 gunboats and 24-re-enactment regiments — from Ontario, Quebec and Kentucky — that will set up camps in Bath and Fort Henry.
