2014 Burning of Dover Mills

Welcome to the website for the Norfolk Militia (Heritage Regiment) Re-Enactment Group. We are pleased to put this online offering up for those interested in history, re-enacting and generally a good time!

The Norfolk Militia Re-enactors are based in Ontario, Canada and take part in historical re-enactments in both Canada and the United States. We are pleased to represent the living history of North America in the nineteenth century, and provide one of the few accurate portrayals of the civilian soldier of The War of 1812.

The Norfolk Militia (Heritage Regiment) was formed in 1983 to honour the original Norfolk Militia established in 1796 and existing to this day as an artillery battery of the Canadian Armed Forces.
