Welcome to our thirteenth installment of “Ask a Historian”.

Every week Heritage Mississauga will be taking questions about the history and heritage of Mississauga which our Historian, Matthew Wilkinson, will answer on Thursday afternoons.

#ApartTogether, Heritage Mississauga is the source for inquiries and curiosity about our beautiful city as we continue our mandate to research, record and celebrate the diverse heritage of Mississauga.

Please watch the video below for the most recent questions and answers and together we can all learn a little more about Mississauga.

Join Historian Matthew Wilkinson for a special episode of “Ask a Re-enactor” as he welcomes guests Greg Carraro, Vice President of the Heritage Mississauga Board of Directors and Captain of the 2nd York Regiment.

This week Matthew will discuss the world of 1812 re-enactments, what it takes to become a re-enactor, what draws people to the hobby and all of the hard work required by those who enlist for this challenging avocation dedicated to education, entertainment and experiencing life in 1812.

#ApartTogether we will explore Living History.

You are invited to email us questions you have about Mississauga and we encourage you to send a short (less than 1 minute) MP4 video of your question, which we may feature in one of our “Ask a Historian” videos.

Any questions not featured in our videos will receive a written response from Matthew.

We would also love to feature questions from young Mississauga residents who are curious about their city and will feature a dedicated video to these inquisitive kids.
