Event Details

Native American bowlmaker (left)and American military Scout and Soldier.Mississinewa 1812:
experiencing the past

Bring your family and journey back 200 years at Mississinewa 1812, the premier living history event in Indiana and the finest War of 1812-era re-enactment in North America. 

Marking its 30th anniversary, Mississinewa 1812's faithful attention to authenticity means you'll be stepping back into the pristine wilderness life of early Indiana Territory. Here you will walk among the trees that first sheltered the great Miami Indian villages of 1752. 

Mississinewa 1812 commemorates the December 17-18, 1812, battle of Mississinewa fought here between 600 mounted federal troops and British allied Indians. 

It is a fresh-air museum, a living portrayal of life as it was two centuries ago, nestled on the bank of the Mississinewa River and clustered around four historic features. 

The American and British military encampments, where soldiers and officers share pageantry and privation as they prepare for the sound and fury of the War of 1812 battle re-nactments. 

The Eastern Woodland Indian Village, where Native American arts and skills, music and stories are brought to life among longhouses and wigwams in the shadow of the towering forest. 

The Rivertown village, where more than 130 merchants, artisans, food purveyors, and musicians offer their wares, their songs, and their food and drink . . . Indian fry bread, bratwurst, barbecue pork chops, chicken and ribs, tasty stews, and buffalo burgers. 

The Wilderness Camp, where trappers, traders, and voyageurs struggle with the ever-notorious river pirates to carve a pioneer settlement from the woodland, bringing new sights and sounds and skills to the frontier.

Daily battle re-enactments. Handicap restrooms. Free Parking. No pets allowed (Assist animals only). Free shuttle bus Saturday & Sunday from Justice Middle School, 720 N. Miller Avenue., Marion, IN 46952. Telephone 1-800-822-1812. www.mississinewa 1812.com.
