Sabres From the War of 1812

Today Teena and I visited Fort George. It was a fabulous day.

There was a demonstration of the weapons of the war, including sabres! Yes, I was in heaven and had a chance to hold a few. Teena said that I had a look of pure joy on my face.

Patrick was stern, funny and gave a great demonstration!

A regular officer's sabre. I know how to use this.

Holding an ivory handled U.S. officer's sabre. It was so beautiful!

A Calvary officer's battle sabre. It was much heavier than the others.

An officer's uniform and sabres.
