Bicentennial Commemoration of the War of 1812
A War of 1812 Book of Remembrance
York, Upper Canada 1812 – 1815
Finding the Fallen: The Battle of York Remembered is a special commemorative exhibition that identifies the Canadian, British, First Nations and American combatants who died at the Battle of York.
The centrepiece of the exhibition is this newly commissioned Book of Remembrance inscribed with the names of 181 fallen combatants.
Starting in April 2013, the original book will be on display at Fort York National Historic Site along with battlefield artifacts, custom-designed maps and first-person accounts that bring to life the sacrifices of the combatants.
