Kent-Delord House Museum 1814 Grand Encampment
Upwards of 200 re-enactors from the U.S. and Canada are expected to descend on Plattsburgh and encamp on the Kent-Delord House Museum grounds at 17 Cumberland Avenue. It is there that the public may stroll among the re-enactors to see how 1814 soldiers lived. The Voltigeurs from Quebec; the Canadian Fencibles from Ontario; the Royal Irish Artillery from Maine and Canada; the 15th U.S. Infantry from New York, Massachusetts and Maine; Forsyth’s Rifles from Northern New York; the Royal Navy Landing Party from Ontario; bateaux from New York, Vermont and Ontario. Local re-enactor units include the 3rd East Kent Buffs and Peru Militia. These re-enactors, men and women from all walks of life, devote many hours to their craft. Their investment of time and money, and their attention to detail and authenticity make history come alive for all of us.
