Any reenactment groups (F&I war thru 1812) here in Ontario? Very interested in starting but seems to be not much around but 1812, And at that only redcoats.

I’ve wondered about that my self. I’ve seen photos of Canadian rendezvous. We had Lewis and Clark but youall have Makinzie twenty years before. All the Great Lakes stuff, and Metis. So much history.

I'd suggest you reach out to The King's Royal Yorkers up there in Canada, and check out the links on their website, and then contact them to see who may be up your way. A lot of folks from AWI reenacting also do Seven Years War.

You should also contact McDonnel's Company: Butler's Rangers which is in Ontario, Canada.

Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I have always thought that one of the most boring jobs in existence would have to be that of a Canadian History Teacher. ( Except for their military involvement in both World Wars ).

As a resident of Michigan, I disagree. There is a great deal of Canadian history: a lot of details, struggle, human drama. It's just that Americans don't know much about it, because it isn't taught in the USA. We have enough trouble teaching our own history. The entry of the French into Canada, indeed North America, is a huge story in and of itself.

I bought the old west series from time life back in the 1970s. There were twentyfive or so books in the group. They were light and fast moving and just fun. They had a book on boatmen and cowboys, gunfighters and townsmen. They reduced all of Canadian history to one book.
They had a bit of excitement every now and then, and the experience of frontiersmen was much the same as ours

Google the Northwest Journal for wonderful resources on the Canadian Fur Trade going well back into the 1700s.

I think Townsend’s is offering a journal of a young lady traveling with her husband on to the Canadian frontier. He referenced in in some of his cooking vids.
