Canada/British North America (BNA)-Union and Confederate Postal Cross Border Correspondence during the US Civil War
by Ron Majors Ph. D
2021, April 12 - 1:18:45 (300Mb)
This talk will discuss how postal communications between Canada and the Union and Confederacy were affected during the war. I will talk about how communications were before, during and after the war. Using illustrated and non-illustrated covers and letters, I will show the sentiment of the general public during this time as well typical and atypical means of correspondence that took place. In addition, over 50,000 Canadians fought in the war and communications by military personnel sent cross border and even within Canada/BNA helps to understand the more personal side of the War. Patriotism flourished during the Civil War and beautifully illustrated patriotic covers were an important symbol used to reflect support and many examples will be shown during this presentation.
