War of 1812

5 Aug 2014
 War of 1812
There is a pause in activities for the next short while. Next will be an attack
on Fort Erie as an attempt is made to move the Americans back across the river.

 Yesterday 4 Aug 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the start of World War 1.
The German Army moved to attack Belgium and the British requested they stop,
which they did not, so Britain declared War. Canada, due to the current situation,
was involved.
