Local Tourist -- River Raisin National Battlefield Park

Today we took a quick run down to the Monroe area to look at the River Raisin National Battlefield Park.  Little did we know that this Saturday was an anniversary of the War of 1812 battle which took place in this area.  Sadly, most of the festivities and re-enactments were in the morning, so we missed that.

Still, we enjoyed the 15 minute video about the battle and ensuing battles which revolved around the River Raisin site.  Peter also got to be a Junior Park Ranger here.

Some photos.

Peter, hard at work trying to figure out his Junrior Ranger assignments.

The oath of a Junior Ranger, successfully completed.
