What I Saw on This Show
28 September 2003 | by (Gaithersburg, MD, USA) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this program, I knew this took place in the 19th Century and they used the words "THE WAR" and "Yankees" a lot. So I knew they were referring to a war against the Yankees but being an American, I thought this occurred after the American Civil War. (Remember even today in the South, Northerners are referred to as Yankees.) But then I noticed the clothing, styles, and even weapons were more akin to the early 19th Century than the later period. So then I realized this took place in Canada and the War was the War of 1812. I still found it intriguing. I knew York was the old name for Toronto and that there was still concern that the US would attempt to annex Canada (just as there was still fear in the US that Britain would still attempt to reconquer the US). But overall it was fun to watch as it helped me to understand Canadians further.
