Beginnings of Democracy


Please accept two corrections to yesterday's Laura Secord book discussion:

Correction #1 - Laura's family did not move to Upper Canada in 1776. Her future husband James--a United Empire Loyalist--moved here that year.

Correction #2 - Laura's father was not a United Empire Loyalist. He fought in the American Revolution on the American side.

Sorry about that! Next time I will get eight hours of sleep before class.
