Eclipsed by the bloodshed of the Civil War, and often overlooked in the aftermath of two World Wars, the “Forgotten” War of 1812 is revisited at Genesee Country Village & Museum.
The weekend will be devoted to activities that recall those harrowing days when the United States was young. The museum’s Historic Village will be populated by visiting War of 1812 reenactors, who will offer insight into the impact of the conflict on the region.
But the event is not all about war. There will also be a special focus on Jane Austen and the Regency Era, exploring its fashions and fascinations. There will also be performances by musicians and dancers from across the region!
