CORNWALL — On Sunday, August 12, 2018, at 1:00 pm at the Cornwall Community Museum, the very site where the Loyalists pulled lots to begin anew, we will be hosting a re-dedication ceremony of the 1934 Loyalist plaque, once proudly displayed on the original Cornwall Post Office. The Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry (SDG) Historical Society have collaborated with the United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada (UELAC) for this event to showcase an important part of the area’s rich history. Among the dignitaries and guests will be several members of the national Board of UELAC. There will also be an exciting announcement made by UE Loyalists Bridge
Annex, the first virtual branch of UELAC, that will further the sharing of this history and will support history-related tourism in the area.
Our event will feature a myriad of opportunities to learn more about the United Empire Loyalists of the region, which includes information about the Mohawk, Haudenosaunee, people, critical allies of the British during the American Revolution. There will be displays, museum tours, re-enactors representing the regiments who participated in the American Revolution, light refreshments and conversation.
