The battle of Frenchtown, in what is now Michigan, during the war of 1812 is the focus of the park. The primary site of the town and battlefield was build on by a paper factory and so there is not a lot to see here at this point as the park is only three years old. The rangers were very informative. Ron is a retired history teacher of 40 years and was able to answer the questions we had. Bob is a career ranger that has served at serveral parks and had a wonderful way with our children, who enjoyed getting dressed up in period clothing among other activities. If your going specifically for a Jr Ranger program call before you go as it has been developed but the books, at this writing, are not yet available. Exit 14 is easier access to the park but exit 15 will take you through the business section of town if your looking for a place to eat. The title of the review came from my wife who was a little resistant in going but we all learned a lot and look forward to returning at some point.
