Chillicothe is now home to the W. Britain Company, the leading maker of authentic toy soldiers & model figures in the world known for quality, authenticity, and attention to detail. Achieving this well-deserved reputation requires that each figure be thoroughly and tirelessly researched before it marches off the drawing board and into the hands of the sculptors and painters. Please join us for a fasci-nating evening as Ken Osen, president of W. Britain, utilizes the knowledge he has gained through his extensive research to provide an overview of the small U.S. Ar-my at the end of the 18th century and beginning of the 19th century. Ken’s focus will be on the clothing, equipment, weapons, and organization of the army from the time of the Ohio Indian Wars in the 1790s to the beginning of the War of 1812. Take this opportunity meet Ken and welcome him to Chillicothe.
