Conscientious Objection during the War of 1812.
Were there CO's during the War of 1812-14? Jonathan Seiling, academic historian, has been researching this and writing a book for the Bi-Centennial Peace Committee. He will present the story of the early Quaker, Mennonite and Brethren-in-Christ settlers in Upper Canada who lived in solidarity with their neighbours but refused to participate in the war. Some were accused of being traitors and some suffered worse damages. Conscience Canada invites you to hear Jonathan following their annual general meeting, to which interested persons are also welcome.
