The first 30 years of Confederation would test the new Dominion in ways never imagined.

It would begin with a political assassination, and continue with western rebellions and the expansion of the country. New provinces would join the family, a national police force and a national railway would quickly follow, leading soon after to a gold rush and our first foreign war as a nation.

The Essex Municipal Heritage Committee, in partnership with the Harrow Early Immigrant research Society (HEIRS), invites you to join storyteller Seamus Gunn at 6:30pm for his much anticipated talk on Canada from Confederation to 1899.
