The War of 1812 Bicentennial

The City of Toronto had a celebration of the Battle of York at Fort York yesterday.
 After the Battle of York parade, vistors poured into Old Fort York and I followed.
 The grounds were full of participants in British, military, Native people and Old York costume.
 I couldn't stop taking pictures of the action and costumes.
I particularly liked the militia groups. 
It was a fascinating peek into Toronto's past right in our own neighbourhood.
