Greetings Military History Enthusiasts!

Last fall, to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812, the Museum  premiered “By Fire & Sword: War in the Niagara Theatre.”   This exhibit focuses on the Niagara Frontier’s role in one of our nation’s most  formative military engagements.

This exhibit is the Museum’s most modern and interactive to date. Inside, Google Nexus tablets will use military re-enactments and green screen technology to guide guests through the nearly two and a half year campaign.

Historical narrators featured include Laura Secord, Cyrenius Chapin, General McClure, and more. The technology driving By Fire & Sword is a collaborative effort between The Buffalo History Museum and Canisius College and is funded by the Perry Memorial Fund.

I wish that I had the ability to see the Museum again for the first time. So much has changed. The impact and optimism of that change has grown exponentially in the community. We hope to see you will stop in for a visit. We think you’ll be happy you did.
