About this Event

Join us on January 14th for an evening with Gurth Pretty, Director of the HMS Psyche Canadian Maritime Heritage Society. In this virtual presentation, travel back in time to 1812 to when a battle was raging in a war that would shape our history. Far from the eyes of Upper Canadian residents on shore, the Royal Navy was performing a vital role in defending the colony from the Americans. Discover the actions of the officers and seamen that crewed the vessels of Lake Ontario’s naval squadron.

How to attend:

This is a virtual event. Registration is required as space is limited. Details on how to join are included in the confirmation email. Participants can attend via computer, tablet, smartphone or dial-in via phone.
