Red Coats at Westfield Heritage Centre.

A British soldier’s helmet from the War of 1812 era sits on a bench at Westfield Heritage Village Sunday. Members of the recreated Upper Canada Militia and the 89th Regiment of Foot were training at Westfield Heritage Village Sunday. When the Americans attacked Canada in 1812, all Canadian men between sixteen and sixty had to be ready to take up arms to defend their country against the invaders. They reinforced the British Forces and successfully repelled multiple attacks for 3 years. The regiment was practicing early 19th century battle drill, maneuverers, and tactics and demonstrating black powder musketry. The uniforms they wear and the weapons they use, are exactly the same as the Canadian and British soldiers in the War of 1812.
