Remember the War of 1812! Complete Schedule of Navy Week In Detroit
The U.S. Navy sail into Detroit this week with warships from the past and present as part of a special Navy Week celebrating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812.
Spectators will be able to tour modern Navy vessels, as well as a tall ship replica.
Detroit was chosen as a host city because of its link to the War of 1812. The city was an important military outpost in the war -- but mainly for the British, who tricked the commander of Ft. Detroit into surrendering the city without a shot and occupied it for more than a year.
