The Civil War forever changed the United States, but its effects were not confined to its states’ borders. Although Canada had not yet become a country, British North America, as it was then known, was deeply affected by the conflict to the south. Canadian-born, USS Monitor Center Conservator Kate Sullivan will discuss the impact of the American Civil War on the country that would become Canada.
