War of 1812 Celebration in Detroit

This year marks the 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812, also known as "The Second War of Independence". Michigan played an important role in this war and the US Navy will be commemorating the anniversary with several special events from September 4th-10th on the Detroit River. There will be tours of several ships, including an historic tall ship. I plan on viewing the ships--maybe I'll see you there!
