UEL Park to be the site of historical naval encampment, battle reenactment this weekend

Guests to Adolphustown’s UEL Heritage Park will have the chance to experience naval life in the late 18th and early 19th century this weekend.

The event is dubbed School of the Sailor (1792-1815) and will explore the rich history of the Lennox and Addington region.

More than 100 reenactors and a variety of period vessels will be on hand to create an authentic naval encampment.

Rope-making demonstrations will be among the presentations as historical actors showcase the life of a sailor from that era. On Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Gap Park across from the Lennox Generating Station will be a recreation of the 1812 American attack on Howell’s Windmill.

The event will also feature the unveiling of the Royal George’s plaque at its new home in Gap Park.

The event is free to public, running 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
