Historic Fort Wayne Coalition
Our group is dedicated to preserving the history of Michigan men and women who served their country between 1845 and 1973 who either sent material to or personally passed through Historic Fort Wayne as a place of induction to United States military service.  We are busy helping the Fortís caretakers, the City of Detroit Recreation Department with this effort in two major ways.  First, we are active in presenting high quality events that provide ways for the public to enjoy Historic Fort Wayne and see glimpses or how it would have looked when it was garrisoned.  We are also very busy in the effort of preserving and restoring as much of the structures and facilities as possible on the Fort grounds.

Kentucky in the War of 1812
Following the 1813 Battle of River Raisin near present day Monroe Michigan, a battle flag was captured from Kentucky soldiers by the British army. There is sparse historical documentation of the origin and or longevity of this flag. How long did it exist before it's capture? Was this flag still in use for the duration of the 1812 war and beyond? If there is a certainty, it is that this is a very rare example of an early military flag carried to battle by volunteer Kentuckians when their state was still in its infancy. read more
