As part of the funding agreement between the Dictionary of Canadian Biography and the Canadian Museum of History, we invite readers to take part in a short survey.

I’ll take the survey now.

Remind me later.

Don’t show me this message again.

I have already answered the survey.

This excerpt from the biography of Charles MAIR indicates how novelists and poets came to view the war in the latter part of the century:

“For his subject he selected the Shawnee leader Tecumseh* who had died in the War of 1812, which he viewed as ‘the turning point of Canada's destiny.’”
