War of 1812 The 19th Regiment of Light Dragoons are looking for a few good men to repel the American invaders. All able bodied men with horses are urged to enlist in this famous Regiment. We offer adventure, travel and comradeship in his Majesty's service.
The 19th Light Dragoons are a local Re-enactment Unit based in the southern Ontario region. We are looking for additional mounted troops to attend the Bi-centennial events in the area: Fort George/Fort Erie, Bath/Kingston, Stoney Creek to name a few. As a living history unit, we bring the past to life for young and old alike. The 19th Light Dragoons portray the only British Cavalry Unit to serve in Canada during the War of 1812. The Unit currently has 12 members along with their ladies We offer full formal dress social events and a annual Regimental dinner to enhance and complete the social atmosphere of the Unit. We are looking for additional people that have a love for history and horses. Where else can you combine the two, while at the same time bringing history to life for thousands of spectators at the local events.
