Ohio's War of 1812 Battlefield
1813 July 4-5, 2015
Happy Birthday, America!
July 4, 1813 was celebrated with cannon firings, toasts, music, and a day of leisure at Fort Meigs. War of 1812 soldiers and civilians will recreate this day through cannon firings, demonstrations, and hands-on activities for children. The highlight activity is the eighteen-gun National Salute accompanied by toasts and fife and drum music starting at 2 p.m. on July 4th.
This morning at sunrise we fired thirteen guns in honor of the 4th of July, 1776. At 1 o'clock we fired eighteen, the National salute, they were all fired from two brass twelve pounders. After the firing was over the officers all repaired to a large bower prepared by Lieut. Hawkins near the lower magazine and partook of a fine dinner... There were 18 toasts drank.
