Mallorytown Talks - The Brockville Infantry Company Citizen Soldiers and Canadian Patriotism in the 1860s

Date: 
March 31, 2019 - 2:00pm

Brian Porter will tell the story of local militia units that were formed all across British North America at the time of the U.S. Civil War, due to fear of American invasion. Irish Fenians attacked at Fort Erie and the Eastern Townships of Quebec in June 1866. John A. Macdonald, Premier of Canada West and Minister of Militia, called out the local militias, including the Brockville Infantry and the Brockville Rifles. A new sense of patriotism was developing among the scattered British colonies in North America on the eve of Confederation.
