I work for Parks Canada at a national historic site. One of our “sister sites” is sharing a series of letters that I thought may interest some of my readers. You can follow the series on the Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites’ facebook page. Here is the introduction to the series. I think it will be fascinating! Follow along!
Starting September 23, 2014, Fort Rodd Hill tells the heart-wrenching story of a normal family in British Columbia faced with World War I.
Using historical photos and letters sent between the siblings of the Grant family, Parks Canada breathes life into one-hundred year-old events.
What was it like during wartime to anxiously wait for news of a loved one? Back then, they didn’t have e-mail or instant messaging! Letters took months to travel back and forth from Europe to Canada.
Follow the lives of Fred, Ed and Belle and learn how their story comes to a close when the final letter is posted on Remembrance Day, November 11, 2014.
