The Detroit Historical Museum is celebrating the city’s final independence from the British this weekend with three events commemorating the British departure on Sept. 29, 1813.

The museum is releasing its new book, “Border Crossings: The Detroit River Region in the War of 1812,” to coincide with the celebration.
