This event is a fundraiser for the Old Northwest Military History Association (ONMHA). ONMHA was organized in 1993 to support Fort Meigs Historic Site. The 501(c)3 non-profit volunteer organization assists Fort Meigs staff with group tours, special events, and other historical activities. Additionally, ONMHA helps create, purchase, and maintain the historical reproductions used at Fort Meigs and co-sponsors and coordinates living history events at the historical site. Members of the organization also travel to other War of 1812 sites around North America in order to participate in reenactments and events, spreading their knowledge to the public.
