In the summer of 1812, war descended upon serene Mackinac Island, as a combined force of British, Canadian, and Native American soldiers captured Fort Mackinac from a small, unsuspecting American garrison in one of the first engagements of the War of 1812. The British retained control of the fort until this day in 1815.
