War of 1812 re-enactors look back 200 years

PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Saturday was a historic day along the banks of the Maumee River in Perrysburg.

Re-enactors from the United States and Canada commemorated the 200th anniversary of the historic first siege of Fort Meigs.

There were also military camps and tactical demonstrations.

The siege involved thousands of British and American soldiers as well as Native Americans.

Today was a day to honor those who fought in the Maumee Valley during the War of 1812.

"We withstood the British attack and held it. And then shortly afterwards, Perry came in and said, 'We have met the enemy and they are ours.'," said Barbara Brauer of Fort Meigs.

Activities are planned for Sunday as well.
