The Scout Brigade Of Fort George Looks Great

For 32 months back in the early 1800s, the United States and the section of North America now known as Canada just couldn’t get along. For 2,393 months and counting since then, everyone has gotten along splendidly.

That’s the basic gist of the Scout Brigade of Fort George. The annual event, hosted by Scouts Canada on Lake Ontario, features thousands of Scouts from both countries. They gather on Canadian soil to honor those who fought in the War of 1812 and to also celebrate the centuries of peace that followed.

Read more about the event in the August 2014 issue of Boys’ Life.
