War of 1812 Bicentennial Memorial to the Crown Forces

The New Brunswick Military History Museum is proud to support
the Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site, Sackets Harbor Battlefield Alliance, and the Community of Sackets Harbor (NY)

War of 1812 Bicentennial
Memorial to the Crown Forces

Killed on May 29, 1813 at the Battle of Sackets Harbor
and Buried in an Unknown Grave on the Battleground,
including the heroes from our own 104th (NB) Regiment of Foot.

Overlooking Black River Bay at the eastern end of Lake Ontario, an engraved granite monument will rest prominently where visitors may reflect and contemplate the battle and those who fought, died, and are buried there. Completing the memorial setting will be a large granite ledger engraved with the name of each of these men, with his rank and unit.

“Monuments are history made visible.”

Help Us Sponsor the Names of the Soldiers of the
104th (NB) Regiment of Foot Who Died During the Battle
by Making a Donation.

Our Goal is to Raise $3500.

YOUR GENEROSITY IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

The New Brunswick Military History Museum will provide a tax receipt for anyone who donates $20 or more.

About frederictonregionmuseum

The Fredericton Region Museum was founded in 1934 by the York-Sunbury Historical Society. The Society was formed in 1932 and now has members from all over North America, however, most are from Central New Brunswick. In 1969 the Museum found permanent headquarters in the Officer's Quarters (571 Queen Street) in the heart of downtown Fredericton. The Society and Museum remain a nonprofit enterprise with a small paid staff and numerous volunteers. They work tirelessly to create informative exhibits, organize programs and events as well as publish a local history periodical The Officers' Quarters. The Fredericton Region Museum is the home of the famous Coleman Frog. He is the 42lb wonder that lived in the Killarney Lake just north of Fredericton about 100 years ago. The Fredericton Region Museum is a gateway into the exciting history and diverse heritage of central New Brunswick. Because central New Brunswick is where the provincial capital is located, and because it served as a meeting place for Aboriginals, Loyalists, Acadian, and other European settlers, the Fredericton Region Museum is an excellent place to start. With over 4000 square feet of exhibit space and a collection of over 30,000 artefacts the museum is a fun and exciting way to look into our past.
