John Warburton U.E. on the War of 1812 and the Capture of York

Relive the spine chilling events as the city of Toronto is under siege from an American UK_union_flagforce in the harbour. A naval flotilla has landed on the lake shore to the west, defeated the defending British force and captured the fort, town and dockyard. As they made their strategic retreat, the British have blown up the fort’s magazine. Now, the American forces are looting and the Parliament buildings are in flames. Come, feel the heat! A man of trademark enthusiasm, John’s presentation is as entertaining as it is informative with much audience participation.
