Battle reenactments, tours, exhibits and other events are set for this year's commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812. The U.S. and Britain fought some of the war's bloodiest battles two centuries ago this year in Ontario and parts of upstate New York from Lake Ontario to Lake Champlain.
