Brock University will host its annual “General Brock Commemoration” on Friday, Oct. 12 to honour the institution’s namesake Maj.-Gen. Sir Isaac Brock who died on Oct. 13, 1812 during the Battle of Queenston Heights in the War of 1812.

This year’s tribute will also mark the two centuries that have passed since General Brock’s death and the War of 1812.

The event begins at 11 a.m. with guests from the Friends of Fort George 41st Regiment of Foot Fife and Drum Corps, Lincoln and Welland Regiment, Second Lincoln Militia and Old Fort Erie Iroquois re-enactors.

The uniformed re-enactors will march along University Road, under the Canadian Tire bridge, up to the front of Schmon Tower where the service will begin with the lowering of the Tower flags.

An informal reception will be held in Isaac’s Bar & Grill on campus after the ceremony. Hot cider will be served.
