A brief note on Memorial Day

Memorial Day in the US was created to honor the Civil War dead. As most of you know, the northern most battle of the Civil War was fought when a group of Confederate raiders came across the border from Quebec and attacked St. Albans, Vermont with the intent of robbing the banks and stealing horses.

Results: $200,000 stolen, one dead, and three wounded.

This raid helped turn Canada against the Confederacy.
