Winnipeg's Great War: A City Comes of Age.
by Jim Blanchard
A good choice as Jim begins a 4 lecture series about The Home Front (Winnipeg) during World War 1 on Sept. 29. Also as mentioned elsewhere on this website there are several celebrations of Ralph Connor House's centennial.
Ralph Connor House was completed in 1914 and then Rev. Charles Gordon left behind his wife Helen and 7 young children to serve at the Front as a Chaplain for the Canadian Forces.
