Civil War Meme Monday #3
Did you know the pier at Tyrconnell was built to sell goods to the US during the American Civil War? Local families, mostly famers, gathered $2000 in capital for the Dunwich Pier Company in 1861, So many men from Elgin County crossed the border to serve. They deserve to be remembered by us for their sacrifice. Join us for our first ever Civil War Reenactment July 29-30 at Backus-Page House Museum.
