First Line of Defence: The Canadian Militia Exhibit

It provides a look into training, pay, uniforms, and weapons, as well as the Militia’s role in St. Marys and along the Grand Trunk Railway. The exhibit is developed around a recently-restored tunic that was worn in the militia cavalry prior to 1843.

This event is wheelchair accessible.
