About The War of 1812

The St. John River Society is commemorating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 in New Brunswick.  The Society and its many partners along the St. John River are remembering the epic winter march of New Brunswick’s 104th Regiment of Foot and the story of the 600 men who marched from Fredericton, New Brunswick to Kingston, Ontario in the winter of 1813.  The St. John River Society is a non-profit organization that since 1992 has been committed to the appreciation and wise use of the natural and cultural heritage of the St. John River.
