Engagement at the Forty - War of 1812 Re-enactment, Grimsby

Two hundred years to the day, boats will again do battle off the shores of Grimsby.

But the demonstration on June 8, 2013 is one in recognition of peace. The events of June 8, 1813, however, were not driven by peace.

The Americans had retreated to The Forty, now Grimsby, after the Battle of Stoney Creek. It was there that they were attacked, on land and water, by the British and Six Nations. They fled for Fort George, leaving behind the dead, the wounded and their supplies.

It was a small skirmish in a long war, but one that had an impact on the overall outcome. Few residents of Grimsby know what happened on the patch of grass next the Grimsby Pump House. To change that, the Grimsby Historical Society and the town’s War of 1812 Bicentennial committee have planned a re-enactment of that battle, exactly 200 years to the day it was fought.

“The battle was a small but important British victory in the War of 1812,” said Craig Tallman, of both the GHS and 1812 committee. “It forced the Americans to retreat in a panic back to Fort George rather than recover and attack the British at Burlington.”

The events begin at 1 p.m. on June 8. The whole family can participate in period dancing, children’s role playing, enjoy the Grimsby Pipe Band, and view musket and artillery demonstrations.

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

Learning by listening is a great way to:
- increases imagination and understanding
- improves your listening skills
- improves your own spoken accent
- learn while on the move
- reduce eye strain

Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

Richard Mentor Johnson (October 17, 1780[a] – November 19, 1850) was the ninth Vice President of the United States from 1837 to 1841. He is the only vice president ever elected by the United States Senate under the provisions of the Twelfth Amendment. Johnson also represented Kentucky in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate; he began and ended his political career in the Kentucky House of Representatives.
Johnson was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1806. He became allied with fellow Kentuckian Henry Clay as a member of the War Hawks faction that favored war with Britain in 1812. At the outset of the War of 1812, Johnson was commissioned a colonel in the Kentucky Militia and commanded a regiment of mounted volunteers from 1812 to 1813. He and his brother James served under William Henry Harrison in Upper Canada. Johnson participated in the Battle of the Thames. Some reported that he personally killed the Shawnee chief Tecumseh, which he later used to his political advantage.
After the war, Johnson returned to the House of Representatives. The legislature appointed him to the Senate in 1819 to fill the seat vacated by John J. Crittenden. As his prominence grew, his interracial relationship with Julia Chinn, an octoroon slave, was more widely criticized. It worked against his political ambitions. Unlike other upper class leaders who had African American mistresses but never mentioned them, Johnson openly treated Chinn as his common law wife. He acknowledged their two daughters as his children, giving them his surname, much to the consternation of some of his constituents. The relationship is believed to have led to the loss of his Senate seat in 1829, but his Congressional district returned him to the House the next year.
In 1836, Johnson was the Democratic nominee for vice-president on a ticket with Martin Van Buren. Campaigning with the slogan Rumpsey Dumpsey, Rumpsey Dumpsey, Colonel Johnson killed Tecumseh, Johnson fell one short of the electoral votes needed to secure his election. Virginia's delegation to the Electoral College refused to endorse Johnson, abstaining instead. However, he was elected to the office by the Senate. Johnson proved such a liability for the Democrats in the 1836 election that they refused to renominate him for vice-president in 1840. President Van Buren campaigned for re-election without a running mate. He lost to William Henry Harrison, a Whig. Johnson tried to return to public office but was defeated. He finally was elected to the Kentucky House of Representatives in 1850, but he died on November 19, 1850, just two weeks into his term.
