200 Years of Peace - Something Worth Celebrating
Did you know that as of December 24, 2014 there have been 200 years of peace between Canada and the United States? The War of 1812 had officially ended and a treaty was signed.
The Signing of the Treaty of Ghent
The Treaty of Ghent was signed December 24 1814
between 4 pm and 6 pm by British and American Diplomats ending the War
of 1812 and defining the borders of Canada.
An undefended border and 200 peaceful years between two neighbouring countries. That's what I call doing it right!
