Nancy Island Historic Site
Nancy Island Historic Site has served as a historic site since 1928 and is the most viable site to the War of 1812 in Simcoe County and the Georgian Bay region. It represents a major event during the War of 1812: HMS Nancy’s battle against three American schooners on August 14th of 1814. The island houses the charred hull and artefacts of the HMS Nancy from this pivotal moment in Canadian history. The borders of Canada today are a direct result of the valiant struggles of the Nancy and her crew!
At the time when citizens did courageous acts to defend their land, country, communities, they may not have conscientiously known the impact they were having on future generations. Today, we can instantaneously see the results of our efforts. This through both today’s world-wide “24-hour” media and through the Internet’s “real-time” technologies.
We rush, rush, rush. Many decisions are made today without realizing the impact they will have on our future. Today’s society needs to continue on the path of “united” generosity – in kindness, service and actions! We all should reflect on our past – for without it, we would not be where we are today!
Our “History in Motion” action video series encourages viewers to go “Back in Time” and “Reflect on Our Past”!
