Bring the whole family for games, food, demonstrations, musical entertainment, fireworks, and the Re-enactment itself. The Battlefield House (Gage Homestead), built in 1796, captures the way of life during the early 19th century. The Gages worked the land with their ten children and became a strong voice in the hamlet of Stoney Creek. During theWar of 1812, the family fled to the cellar as the Battle of Stoney Creek raged outside. The British victory at the Battle of Stoney Creek was crucial in preventing the Americans from seizing Upper Canada. The Battlefield Monument stands as a symbol of peace and commemorates those soldiers who died on June 6, 1813.
