Bayonets Before Daybreak Recreates 1813 Capture of Fort Niagara

A special walking tour set for Sunday morning, December 19 will follow in the footsteps of British soldiers who captured Fort Niagara exactly 197 years ago. The tour will be led by a uniformed War of 1812 soldier who will walk participants through the daring night attack that delivered Fort Niagara from U.S. into British hands. The soldier will also give tour participants a first-hand look at Fort Niagara's American garrison, including uniforms and equipment of U.S. War of 1812 soldiers.

The tour begins at 7:00 am, just hours after the actual assault captured the Fort on the morning of December 19, 1813. Following the tour, participants will be served breakfast at the Fort Niagara Officers Club. Attendance is limited to the first twenty people who register. Cost is $18.13 per person and must be paid in advance by calling (716) 745-7611.
