War of 1812 – photos of Fort York


I lived in Toronto for about 40 years yet never got my butt over to Fort York.  This week I remedied that.  It was a warm, sunny day, and I dodged school groups successfully.  Start of Toronto began on this location.  During the War of 1812 American troops attacked and burned the fort.  In revenge, British troops attacked Washington and burned the White House.
