Listen to this story
A series of lectures on the War of 1812 will be held in Ogdensburg this weekend. The Fort La Presentation Association's fourth annual War of 1812 Lectures will be held at the Freight House Restaurant on Friday and Saturday. Eight experts from the U.S. and Canada will present the latest research on battles, allies, historic preservation, medical practices, and the work of local museums. It's a chance to share common ideas about different aspects of the war.

Ontario re-enactor Michael Whittaker, one of the organizers, says the event will appeal to students, history buffs and the curious. Todd Moe got his take on this year's War of 1812 bicentennial commemorations and the weekend gathering. Whittaker says the St. Lawrence River was one of the focal points of the war.
