Hey! This week something special has happened. What, you ask? Why, Roch and I have teamed up to come up with this special edition article called "Eh! Important People: Canada!" For this article, we will be together talking about four important people from the country Canada! We have together written this article on important people from Canada, therefore, combining our columns! So, for this week, here is your important people and your Canadian info:
Laura Ingersoll was born to a Loyalist family in Great Barrington, Massachusetts in 1775. In 1795 the family moved to the Canadas, and in 1797 she married a fellow Loyalist, James Secord. They resided in Queenston in Upper Canada (present-day Ontario),
In May of 1813 the American army invaded again and the Secord home was forced to billet three American officers. On June 21, Laura overheard them discussing plans for a surprise attack on Lieutenant James Fitzgibbon at Beaver Dams, which would have allowed the Americans to control the Niagara Peninsula.
