Hundreds of French and Indian War re-enactors return to Ogdensburg this weekend for Founder's Day events. About a dozen colorful re-enactment units portraying 18th century regiments of the French and British armies, their colonial militias and Native allies will set up their canvas tents on Lighthouse Point. Nine bateau and traditional boats will mark the navy encampment on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. Keeping an eye on those boats will be Harbor Master Michael Whittaker, from Ontario. He told Todd Moe that the nearness of the archaeological remains of Fort de la Presentation puts re-enactors in touch with the history they treasure.
