New travelling exhibit: the 100th Regiment of Foot

Today we installed a new bilingual and portable version of our exhibit all about the 100th Regiment at the Stittsville Library. This exhibit features a life-size silhouette of a soldier so you can see if you "measure-up" and meet one of the enlistment requirements, as well as information about the War of 1812 and the soldier's transition from Northern Ireland to Canada. And just to make sure the panel was working, we asked a few children (and staff) to pose with the silhouette :) On display at the Library from August 1-31.

After checking this exhibit, why not stop by the Museum and learn the rest of the story - we have a new exhibit about the Exceptional Women in the War of 1812 on now, as well as an exhibit called Voyage of Goulbourn's 100th Regiment :)
