Virtual Museum Lecture Series – Upper Canada’s Black Defenders Take On Niagara’s ‘Wild West’


Sometimes known as the Black Defenders of Upper Canada, the Coloured Corps militia unit famously served in the War of 1812 and was called out to the Rebellion of 1837. Less remembered, however, is how the Corps took on many tense, violent, and deadly altercations and riots with particular skill in what can only be described as Niagara’s ‘Wild West’ between the 1830s and 1851. Join this lecture for some remarkable stories presented by Visitor Services Coordinator Adrian Petry.
