Many OGS Branches forgo a December meeting, not so Ottawa Branch which meets on Saturday, 15 December for a presentation "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.The presentation is by historical researcher, and Board Member of the Goulbourn Museum, Kurt Johnson.
The meeting runs from 13:00 – 15:00 at the City of Ottawa Archives, 100 Tallwood Drive, Room 115, and may be simulcast for members
