Battle of the Longwoods and “Soldiers”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The re-enactment of the Battle of the Longwoods will will be held Sat. March 8, 2014.  Traffic will be re-routed off Longwoods Road.  This is the first time the battle will be re-enacted on the actual site.

The “Soldiers” barn quilt block was the first choice for this battle ground where blood was spilled.  “Soldiers” captures the attention of motorists speeding by and encourages people to stop the car and pay respects at the cairn.

The Upper Thames Reenactment Society cares for the site and holds a memorial service each year on the first Sunday of March at 2:00 p.m.

“Soldiers” is sponsored by Betty Simpson.
