Speaker Kurt Johnson
Topic Perils and Petticoats: Exceptional Women of the War of 1812
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. This talk will be presented by historical researcher, and Board Member of the Goulbourn Museum, Kurt Johnson.
Everyone is welcome.
Please arrive by 1:00 p.m. for free refreshments and a chat time (networking).
