Organization Activities

Business Meetings

The association has monthly business meetings on the first Thursday of every month except December.

Drill and Training

Our unit has a good reputation in the War of 1812 reenacting community. To maintain this, we hold drill
or training sessions every Thursday, except for the first Thursday of each month, from April through
September. Drill consists of artillery, musket, or marching.
All members are expected to attend training sessions, which include clothing and uniform talks, black
powder safety, site history, and site safety.

Event Support

We support several special events at Fort Meigs with costumed interpretation, set up before, and tear
down afterwards. Lunch and often dinner is usually provided for our volunteers.

Away Events

ONMHA attends several events at other sites throughout the midwest and Canada. This gives us the
opportunity to camp at other historic sites and interact with many other reenacting units from both
sides. These are unique experiences that the general public does not often get. ONMHA usually covers
the cost of food and gunpowder for these events.

Social Gatherings

The association has a Christmas Dinner and Dance in December. We have a family picnic and watch the
fireworks on July 3 rd . We will frequently buy lunch during sewing or site work sessions.
