O for Ontario

My 2020 Blogging from A to Z Challenge revisits my best posts from the 2014 to 2019 Challenges.

O for Ontario (2015)

Lake Ontario was a distant vista when I spent a year at college in Toronto. But it proved a crucial area in the War of 1812 for Gregory Wendell. The author of the diary in ‘Seeking A Knife’, Book 3 of my Snowdon Shadows series, is an Royal Navy officer who sees action on Lake Ontario, prior to meeting a Choctaw girl.

How much do you know about the War of 1812? When I studied British history in the UK, it was a footnote to the Napoleonic Wars. But now I’m learning, initiated by spending a few years in Canada. So far, everyone learnt little about the War at school.

    • Although, I lived in Ontario (Toronto) for a year, I suspect the nearest I’ll get is Ontario, Idaho. The nearest part of Canada is over the northern Idaho border – into Alberta. We will have to dream together, EC.
