JOIN US ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2019, AT 7:15 P.M., FOR A PRESENTATION BY FRANK MITCHELL:
Montreal, Canada and the U.S. Civil War!
Montreal is a great city to visit. It is a gem of Canada. Apparently, many people during the Civil War thought the same thing. Montreal quickly became a popular place to visit. Some cities would not welcome the number of spies and conspirators to their city but Montreal seemed to embrace them. Montreal citizens walking down the street ran the risk of brushing shoulders with Confederate spies and sympathizers as well as some Union supporters. In this talk we will share some interesting stories of the people that came to Montreal and the city that embraced them.
