Fort William played a pivotal role in the development of Canada. It was no so much a military operation as a commercial one run by the North West Company, a rival of the famous Hudson Bay Company of British North America. The personnel are in character and costume of the early 19th Century (around 1815) and at our visit there was a re-enactment of a War of 1812 battle with the invading Americans. The British won. It was an entertaining, educational, and enjoyable trip for us grandparents, our kids, and grandson. A short side-trip to beautiful Kakabeka Falls in an Ontario Provincial Park was well worth it as well.
