The United Empire Loyalists of Canada - Bicentennial Branch (Southwestern Ontario)
Untitled Document


Kim Hurst UE of Bicentennial Branch proudly writes that she has received a copy of the August 2006 Duval Press publication called Their Stories, Our History: Canada’s Early Years. The format, similar to the 2003 book, Early Settlers by Bruce and Kim Henbest, combines illustrations and photography with the text. In chapter five of this grade seven history book, on pages 132 and 133, are three photographs taken at a Bicentennial’s Loyalist presentation at the Gen. Isaac Brock Public School earlier this year: Sarah Hurst UE demonstrates to other students just how clothing was washed by the Loyalist pioneers; Bill McAgy UE and wife, Tilly, give students a taste of just how difficult it was to saw through logs with the two man saw; Linda Lynch of Kingsville Historical Park teaches students how to grind down corn in order to make bread. In addition, on page 128 is a photograph of the United Empire Loyalist monument in Hamilton. Kim reports that “it is a fantastic book”. Congratulations to Kim and Bicentennial Branch for visually demonstrating to the rest of the country that Loyalist education can be of interest to our youth.
