War of 1812 Grand Encampment
The volunteers of the Chesapeake Independent Blues and the First Regiment Volunteers will be participating in the largest War of 1812 program ever held at Old Fort Niagara along the shores of the Great Lakes on the boarder of Canada during the weekend of July 28-29, 2018. The public interpretive program will recreate in large scale the military actions which occurred between the American and British forces at Fort Niagara during the War of 1812, including military encampments, naval and land engagements, weapon demonstrations, and military camp life. The Blues and the First will be joined by interpretive units from across North America and overseas, creating the largest War of 1812 program to be held since the Bicentennial of the Battle of New Orleans in January of 2015.
The Blues will be interpreting the First Baltimore Volunteers, nicknamed by the British as "The Baltimore Bloodhounds", who were the only Maryland State Militia to participate in the American invasion of Canada during the military campaigns of 1813. The Volunteers served with distinction during their year of service, and many veterans later enlisted in the 39th Regiment of Maryland Militia which saw action at the Battle of North Point in September of 1814.
