Remembering Canada's history of rebellion
If, for some reason, the news has passed you by, 2012 is bicentennial of the War of 1812. And while we don't have a Twitter account (
who has the time?—actually we do!), we've had some fine Rebulars™ inform us of some interesting Thwippers who have been reliving the war:
From @1812now: "Events as they happen two hundred years ago today."
And from the preeminent Steve Paikin:
200 years ago today, US general william hull led the first american attack across the detroit river into canada. #Warof1812— Steve Paikin (@spaikin) July 8, 2012
Be that as it may, the fine folks over at the Mackenzie House also remind us of Rebellion of 1837:
2012 is the 175th anniversary of the 1837 Rebellion.Over the next 6 months, we'll be "rebellion tweeting",to mark the occasion. #Rebellion— Mackenzie House (@MackenzieHouse) July 4, 2012
'Tis the season for (of) rebellion—because 175 years is nothing to sneeze at! So come on in, show us your Tweets, and join us in the celebration.
