OLD NORTHWEST MILITARY HISTORY ASSOCIATION
The Old Northwest Military History Association (ONMHA) is a family-friendly organization of people who have an interest in history, specifically of Fort Meigs and the War of 1812. Our members fill many roles, with most of these being divided into two categories, costumed interpretation, and non-costumed support.
Costumed interpreters represent life during the War of 1812. Our military interpreters portray Cushing’s Company of the 2nd US Artillery. This company was an amalgamation of several different types of soldiers. Our civilians demonstrate different skills and crafts people would have used out here on the frontier over 200 years ago. Non-costumed members help with site and event support.
Our focus is supporting Fort Meigs, but we also attend events at other historic sites in the United States and Canada. We also get together for picnics, dinners, dances, and sometimes just to talk.
