Whats Up at The Backus-Page House
Things look great at at the museum and are very busy as they are also getting ready for their US Civil War Re-enactment July 29th-30th. Canadians were largely opposed to slavery during the time of the US Civil war. Close economic and cultural links across the border also encouraged Canadian sympathy towards the Union. Between 33,000 and 55,000 men from British North America (Canada) enlisted in the war, almost all of them fighting for Union forces. 

         Come  check out the Museum Tuesday- Sunday and keep a look out for the incredible events the Backus-Page House Museum has to offer.
