Nonetheless, Toronto takes notes of the anniversary as I report in "Commemorate the Battle of York in the War of 1812".
My article highlights some of the events, including a sunrise event by members of several First Nations groups whose ancestors fought alongside the British colonists.
The article notes other highlights, including a walking tour and a parade, both of which end at Fort York. My article links to the official City of Toronto web page for more details.
One Historic Writing Tip
In this instance, I happened to see an online ad for this day to commemorate the War of 1812 in Toronto's Fort York. In my opinion, the event was poorly advertised: it barely registered for me, and only because I'd previously written about annual events at Fort York.
Although I'm more inclined to write about annual events in Toronto than about a one-time ceremony, I felt this reminder of the Battle of York deserves its day in the sun.
