I’m pleased to share with you information about a talk that Denise Harris will be presenting at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at the Mimico Centennial Library.
Her topic is Etobicoke and 1812.
Dennis Harris is president of the Etobicoke Historical Society.
Her lecture, based on extensive research, will focus on the impact of the War of 1812 on Etobicoke and its residents.
There were no battles in Etobicoke, but over fifty Etobicoke families served in the York Militia and faught in several battles.
In her talk, Dennis Harris will also share with us an overview of what it was like to be living in Etobicoke a couple of hundred years ago, during the War of 1812.
