Dr. Adele Ernstrom, “Dark Memories Haunted Jefferson Davis in Quebec”
November 25, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
“Dark Memories haunted Jefferson Davis in Quebec”, a paper by recently deceased Bishop’s professor Robert MacGregor, will be presented by Dr. Adele Ernstrom on November 25. Prof. MacGregor’s research examines local responses to Jefferson Davis’s presence in Quebec. They range from reports he arrived in Lennoxville in his wife’s clothes, to threats from a Stanstead crowd that he be tarred and feathered as a war criminal. He was held responsible for the abuse of Union captives in Andersonville Prison.
Shedding light on Canadians’ relationship with the American Civil War, the paper will be presented at the Unitarian-Universalist Church of North Hatley, corner of Main and Gagnon, in a service at 10:30 AM to honour the memory of Prof. MacGregor.
