1812 – Part 14: Discovery Harbour and Penetanguishene


Even though the Treaty of Ghent had been signed at the conclusion of the War of 1812, the British were still concerned that the Americans might try to invade Upper Canada again. This vignette deals with the Aftermath and features stories on: the founding of Discovery Harbour; how the little town of Penetanguishene became a bilingual oasis in Ontario; the fate of the Insect Fleet and War Ships of the Upper Great Lakes; and the School of the Sailor.
