Few women’s stories appear in Canadian history books as their contributions to the War of 1812 are overlooked. Canada’s bicentennial commemoration is the perfect time to tell about six real women whose husbands marched off to war to defend the British colonies. These women’s stories are about bravery, devotion and perseverance.
Perils & Petticoats: Exceptional Women of the War of 1812 will be presented during the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogy Society's December meeting by historical researcher, and Board Member of the Goulbourn Museum, Kurt Johnson. It will take place Saturday, December 15 from 1-4 pm at the City of Ottawa Archives, 100 Tallwood Drive, Room 115.
It's recommended that you arrive by 1:00 p.m. for free refreshments and a chat time (networking). For members of the OGS who cannot attend in person, the meeting will be simulcast.
