Canada 150—Remembering the Patriot War

17 members met at HWY 416 & Bankfield for a road tour and trip through time, led by Les. The trip to Prescott had us drive country roads through Oxford Mills and Bishop’s Mills to the first stop of the day at Fort Wellington in Prescott. We received a history lesson on the fort from the war of 1812 to the 1837-38 rebellions.

After touring the fort, we made our way to the Red George Pub for lunch.

Following lunch, we travelled east a short distance along the St. Lawrence River to the Battle of the Windmill National Historic Site to tour the windmill and another history lesson on the battle that took place on the site in 1838.

After the tour of the Windmill, we travelled across the road to the Windmill Brewery/King’s Lock Distillery. We had a chance to tour the distillery and sample many of the fine spirits.

The day was a busy one, with a great road tour, lots of history lessons, good lunch and tasteful samples from the distillery. Thanks Les for a great day.
