New date: Heritage Mississauga Presents War of 1812 Exhibit
Travelling exhibit from the Archives of Ontario

January 10th 2012

Heritage Mississauga hosts a War of 1812 Exhibit at The Grange

 

A Call to Arms: The War of 1812 & Historic Mississauga

Featuring a travelling exhibit from the

Archives of Ontario

Presented in partnership with the Peel Heritage Complex

 

January 24th, 2012 to February 24th, 2012

 

Presented in partnership with the Peel Heritage Complex, Heritage Mississauga is delighted to host the War of 1812 travelling exhibit from the Archives of Ontario from January 24th until February 24th, 2012. The exhibit will be augmented with images and information connecting historic Mississauga to the War.

 

The Archives of Ontario’s War of 1812 travelling exhibit sheds light on formative events in the history of Ontario. The War of 1812 had long-term effects on the economic, social and political life of the province. This exhibit is a history resource that showcases some of the personalities and locations that played a role in the war, and explores the events of that conflict using the correspondence and diaries of those who lived it. Their words are illustrated with artwork, maps and photographs from the holdings of the Archives, many being made widely available for the first time. We invite you to explore this exhibit and learn about the War of 1812 in Upper Canada. In addition, the exhibit will feature information and images connecting the militia veterans from historic Mississauga (Toronto Township). This free exhibit is open from Tuesday to Friday, 9am-5pm, and 8pm on most Tuesdays.

 

For more information, please contact Heritage Mississauga at 905-828-8411 ext.29.
