"Redcoat 1812: The difference between historical fiction and non-fiction history"
Speaker: John Nixon
John Nixon grew up a few hundred yards from the battlefield at Stoney Creek. He cannot remember a time when the War of 1812 did not spark his imagination. Now this award-winning secondary school teacher serves the Hamilton Historical Board and devotes his time to sharing his interest in the event as important to Canada as the American Revolution is to the United States. Redcoat 1812 is the novel he always wanted to write. Uncovering our unknown war. How the War of 1812 created a new nation.
