War of 1812 with Ken Shepherd
June 21, 2023 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Ken’s presentation on the War of 1812 in the Michigan theatre looks at the Downriver area before and after the surrender of Detroit. There are a couple of battles in the area, and troops passed through what is now Wyandotte, to try to open communications between Detroit and the American-held lands in Ohio. His concentration, however, is usually on the politics; General Hull, the commandant at Detroit, was court martialed for surrendering the city, and a lot of people who were at Detroit spoke up in that trial.
