Event Description

The winter of 1813 was one of extreme cold and heavy snows. Between February and April, New Brunswick’s 104th Regiment of Foot marched more than 1100 kilometres from Fredericton, New Brunswick to Kingston, Ontario to reinforce British troops and thwart an expected invasion by the Americans. This effort by a regiment of poorly clothed, frostbitten and hungry soldiers stands as an incredible feat in military history.

Partners in the provinces of New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario are proud to be commemorating this epic winter march with a re-enactment in the winter and spring of 2013.  This re-enactment will re-trace the steps the soldiers of New Brunswick’s 104th Regiment of Foot marched on their way to the theatre of war.

Key Re-Enactment Event Dates include:

  • February 16 - Fredericton, New Brunswick: Mustering of the march in Officers’ Square and Commemorative Ceremony, Garrison District National Historic Site, 549 Queen St., Fredericton, N.B.
  • March 10 - Cabano, Quebec: Hand off of march from New Brunswick to Quebec at Fort Ingall Historic Site, 81 Caldwell St. Temiscouata-sur-le-Lac, Québec
  • April 6 - Bainsville, Ontario: Hand off of march from Quebec to Ontario at the Ontario Travel Information Centre, 22064 North Service Road, Bainsville, ON
  • April 12 - Kingston, Ontario: Conclusion of the March and Commemorative Ceremony

The Canadian Fencibles, Canadien Voltigeurs and the Glengarry Light Infantry Fencibles will be completing the last leg of the famous 104th march in the winter of 1813.
