Ever interested in joining the army? How about the British Army…circa 1812. Completed in 1802 when the British were forced to abandoned Fort Niagara across the river in accordance to the Jay Treaty of 1796, it became part of the defense of Upper Canada in the 19th Century. In 1813 the fort was captured by American forces who used it as a base to invade the rest of upper Canada, they were repulsed at Stoney Creek and Beaver Dams, the British were able to recapture the lost fort in December of 1813. During the First and Second World Wars the Fort was used as a training camp for the Canadian Army under the name Fort Niagara. During the unification of the forces in 1965 the fort was abandoned. Today the fort stands as it was in 1812 as a National Historic Site in Canada. The employees who occupy the fort are dressed as the 41st Regiment of Foot.
