Grades 4-8 | Sheffield Museum of Rural Life presents Meet the War of 1812 Canadian Militia Veteran - Nov 16, 2020 12:10pm EST
About this event:
Invite a veteran of the War of 1812 militia into your classroom to talk to your students about life as an early Upper-Canadian soldier and settler and the fight against the Americans. This is an opportunity to interview a person from the past (or the next best thing) and students are encouraged to ask this “first-person” character questions. The veteran will show some of his farm and army tools including a replica flintlock musket and teach a barn dance with live fiddle music.
