War of 1812 Reenactment Groups
The 41st Regiment of Foot was a line regiment in the British Army. It was deployed to Canada in 1799 and stationed in many parts of Upper and Lower Canada during the ensuing 16 years. At the outbreak of the War of 1812, it represented the vast majority of the thinly arrayed British Army regulars that were defending Upper Canada. The 41st Foot was the main component of Brock's force that captured Fort Detroit. It was largely the 41st under Sir Roger Sheaffe that drove the Americans off of Queenston Heights. The 41st were extremely active in the Detroit/Amhertsburg theatre and the Niagara area throughout the conflict earning more battle honours than any other British Regiment during the War of 1812 (Detroit, Queenstown, Miami and Niagara).
The 41st Regiment of Foot Military Living History Group is a group of individuals who re-create the 41st Regiment, as it was when it served in Canada during the War of 1812. The 41st Regiment of Foot MLHG re-enacts at War of 1812 events, supports historic sites and museums, does educational outreach programs, hosts a bi-annual War of 1812 lecture series and conducts historical research on an ongoing basis.
