"War of 1812: Battles of the Raisin"
DVD produced by the
Friends of the River Raisin Battlefield


This is the story of the largest field battle ever fought in what is now the state of Michigan. It began with a skirmish at French Town on January 18, 1813. The initial engagement ended in victory for the United States, but the situation was reversed at the Battle of the River Raisin on January 22, when a force of British and Native Americans, led by Col Henry Proctor, completely destroyed the American army under Brig. General James Winchester.

As a result of this disaster, "Remember the Raisin" became the rallying cry for the American forces on the Northwestern Frontier during the  War of 1812.

This documentary is dedicated to the memory of the memory of the United States, British, Canadian, and Native American participants from both sides especially those who gave their lives, and to the inhabitants of French Town who suffered, yet persevered.
