in Battle of Prairie du Chien reenactment The elegant grounds of the Villa Louis were transformed into a battlefield on July 13-14, with the reenactment of the 1814 Battle of Prairie du Chien. The Villa Louis has commemorated the battle for Fort Shelby for over 20 years with a reenactment on the west lawn—the site where the battle actually took place. Above, American troops fire on invading British forces, but the British once again proved to be too much. Below, two American re-enactors lower the flag, having lost the battle.
