London & Middlesex Historical Society: October 2023 Meeting

October 18, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Brian ‘Chip’ Martin, “From Underground Railroad to Rebel Refuge: Canada and the Civil War”

Retired reporter and journalist from the London Free Press and London author, Chip in his latest book, reveals the breadth of this country’s involvement in the American Civil War. Martin’s research found that more than 40,000 Americans came to Canada during the war and that twenty thousand people from Canada, including the London region, went south to serve on both sides.

Martin’s research explores what happened before, during and after the Civil War not only in the London area, but across Southwestern Ontario and the Niagara region.

The speaker programme for the London and Middlesex Historical Society takes place on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm at the Old Courthouse building, 399 Ridout St. N., London.

​Notice: Limited free parking in lot behind the Courthouse, off King Street West. Entry/exit to the building is from the south (by stairs from side door). Please check the City of London website due to major road construction in the downtown area.

Remember to arrive early as someone is required to let you in and no one is on duty after the meeting starts.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Bring a friend. These monthly meetings are free to the public.
