It's coming up. And I have suddenly realized, clueless American that I am, that I know nothing about this day other than it is our northern neighbor's day of independence that falls so closely to our American own. In fact my very limited knowledge of Canadian history ends somewhere around the War of 1812 (expect perhaps concerning hockey, theater, and knowing that Quebec is a rebelious provence). So how about it Canadians? How did you win your independence? And isn't your 200th anniversary coming up within the next decade or so? I am eager for a history lesson. Consequently, if any of you Canadians have questions about the American Revolution I might be able to answers some questions in turn.
