Commemorating the Battle of Scajaquada Creek Bridge

It’s all well and good to learn about Buffalo history online, but there are some people who would rather experience historical accounts live and in person. But how does one go about doing that? It’s easy, thanks to our friends in Black Rock.

On August 3, 2014 from 12pm-4pm Buffalo will commemorate the Battle of Scajaquada Creek Bridge. There will be reenactments, talks, lectures, simulations, and an earful of Buffalo War of 1812 history that you are not likely to soon forget. Along with all of the historical elements, there will also be horse and buggy rides, blacksmiths creating era-significant objects, and food from the Whole Hog Food Truck (prepared just the way they would have back in 1812, except on a food truck). There will be meat and veggie options. Cash only, as there were no credit cards back in 1812. See details below:
