    Default Blue Army cemetery, Niagara on the Lake

    I was in Canukistan for a short visit last week, and had the opportunity to dodge the raindrops and visit the Polish Blue Army graveyard at Niagara on the Lake, Ontario.

    The photos were taken May 6, so I assume that the floral tributes are from Constitution Day

    Absolutely amazing history. I was like Dan and completely ignorant about this group of brave men. It would be rare indeed to find men today that loved their country so much. Thanks for showing.
