The 100th Regiment Historical Society is pleased to announce the launched of its Historical Interpretation Program. For the spring of 2014 the program will see the 100th (Prince Regent’s County of Dublin) Regiment recreated in the Ottawa, Ontario region.
Members of the program will have the rare opportunity to be the first in almost two hundred years to wear the uniform and parade as the 100th Regiment of Foot. Each member will be trained to portray either a private, drummer, or NCO of the regiment as they would have appeared in garrison during the summer of 1815.
Volunteers aged fifteen years of age and older without restriction to race or gender are invited to apply. The society also invites anyone interested in helping with program delivery to contact the recruiting office.
Original 100th Regiment buttons worn by rank & file likely found in Upper Canada in the Niagara region.

This miniature silhouette portrait, circa 1804-1818, is one of very few images of British or Canadian soldiers who served on the Niagara frontier during the War of 1813, and in particular, at Fort George National Historic Site of Canada.
Based on the partially legible inscription on the back of the portrait, this is thought to be the image of Brevet Major John Martin, who belonged to the 100th Regiment of Foot.
