Members of the Fort La Présentation Association, Ogdensburg, will portray an 1812-era civilian and soldier at the March 17-18 Great Lakes Seaway Trail War of 1812 Bicentennial Quilt Show in Sackets Harbor. Barbara O’Keefe (right) and Tim Cryderman will be joined by the association’s Forsyth’s Rifles, living history interpreters from the Sackets Harbor Battlefield Alliance and Genesee Country Village and Museum, and quilters in period-correct costume at the event that has expanded to three early 19th-century historic sites in Sackets Harbor.
