Description

Excerpt from Women's Canadian Historical Society of Ottawa, Annual Report, 1913-1914 Tecumseh, and the visit to Amherstburg and old Fort Malden, illustrated by some fine photos taken by Mrs. E. J. Thompson. On December 12th, the Treaties series was resumed by Miss Muriel Shortt, who had as her subject the Treaty of Ghent, giving an able resume of the causes which led up to the war of 1812; the meetings held by the plenipotentiaries in drawing up the famous treaty, and the treaty itself, by which the war between Great Britain and the United States was happily brought to a close, December 24th, 1814. This paper was followed by Miss Eva Read's verbal account of the Centenary Celebration of the battle of Chrysler's Farm, describing the battleground about four miles east of Morrisburg, the monument erected thereon by the Canadian government in 1896, and the soul-stirring patriotic speeches of the Premier, Rt. Hon: R. L. Borden and Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux to the great civil and military gathering numbering some eight or ten thousand.
