Monroe, Michigan (July 14, 2017) �" The Rally on the River Raisin at the National Battlefield is an educational engaging event for the entire family.  The Foundation is excited for this event to bring together the River Raisin’s National Battlefield’s history with today’s events and activities.  On September 16th, the River Raisin National Battlefield Park will be booming from the parade in downtown Monroe at 11 am until the last fireworks go off over the battlefield at dusk.  The Jeep Rally has brought in old and new Jeeps from all over the region that will cruise through downtown to get the day rolling. Along with the rally, we will be raffling off a 2017 Jeep Wrangler!  VFW Riders will also be joining to bring the noise and raise further awareness for their POW efforts.  The River Raisin National Battlefield is the only National Battlefield Park dedicated to telling the untold story of the War or 1812.  Living demonstrations such as blacksmiths, candlemakers and fur traders will all be on display throughout the event.  On top of that, military vehicles will be there as well as weapon demonstrations from the 1700’s to the present day.  The River Raisin National Battlefield Park is the site where the most POW’s were taken on American soil by a foreign power.  Stand on the soil where our ancestors fought!  To top the event off, there will be an after party with nationally known band, Here Come the Mummies, an illusionist and fireworks at dusk.
