God save the queen. Former Dunmore natives and close friends Brian McAndrew and Bill Ciccotti embark on a road trip every year. On Friday, March 20, the duo traveled to Ontario, Canada on an international and historical road trip. They were involved in the anniversary re-enactment of the Battle of Queenston Heights, the first major battle in the War of 1812.

“We traveled around Ontario with a Dunmore towel and displayed it everywhere we went,” said Ciccotti.

The Dunmoreans also visited Fort George at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and Fort Ontario in Oswego, New York — capturing both for America, but more specifically Dunmore.  The Bicentennial of the War of 1812 was only three years ago, and both men are still celebrating Dunmore’s recent 150th anniversary.
