Bicentennial of the War of 1812 at Conner Prairie

April 21-22
Bicentennial of the War of 1812
Exactly 200 years ago, a war was raging right here in Indiana – maybe even in your own backyard! William Conner and many other Hoosiers played important roles in this war in which the British and Americans were fighting over the rights to rule this land once again. Conner Prairie Interactive History Park will host a group of talented reenactors who will bring this tumultuous time to life. Check out the firearms and equipment used by soldiers while you visit their War of 1812 encampment on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is $14/adult, $13/seniors 65+, $9/youth (ages 2-12), free for members and youth under 2.

For more information, call (317) 776-6006 or (800) 966-1836 or visit www.connerprairie.org.
