Dr. Stephen Henderson, professor of History at Acadia University, will give a talk on Peter Hamilton, a very colourful character from Brookfield who edited the Acadian Recorder in the 1850s and 60s. Hamilton was a strong proponent of Confederation who carried on ‘intermittent warfare’ with Joseph Howe.
