Maybe a bit off topic here, but not really and there is no other place to post this.
I was looking for something to read last night, and came across a book in my Library that I had bought sometime ago, but forgot about.
The Title is "Forgotten Patriots, Canada's Rebels on Australia's Convict Shores" By Jack Cahill.
I am sure that many of our Members from that Area know little if anything of the uprisings we had here in both the Upper and Lower Canada's (Quebec and Ontario now) during the late 1830s, well I never knew many who took part were sent to VDL as Convicts, I just started reading this last night, and am learning more of a part of Forgotten Canadian and Australian History...With that many Canadians sent there, it is no wonder that the ANZACs did so well in both World Wars!!! LOL,, Just kidding guys!!
