Fort Ontario State Historic Site opens today, May 18, and will host a variety of special events, including a French and Indian War living history event June 29 and 30. This year marks the 250th anniversary of the end of the French and Indian War, and the beginning of Pontiac’s Rebellion which ended at Oswego in 1766 with the Treaty of Fort Ontario. Re-enactors from around the United States and Canada will converge on Oswego to recreate the failed French attack on Fort Ontario in 1759 which helped seal the fate of France’s North American Colony.
