Award-winning author Jean Rae Baxter UE will discuss her 2023 book, Battle on the Ice. Most Canadians have never heard of the Battle of Point Pelee in 1838. Why did the grandchildren of Loyalists, who had fought hard and had given up land and lifestyle to support the British Crown, rebel against the government in 1837? Jean will discuss important political figures, such as William Lyon Mackenzie and William McCormick, and some lesser-known historical figures of the area and the struggles they endured.
