Professor Emeritus, Dr. Richard Reid has completed new book on the African Canadians who volunteered to fight during the American Civil War: African Canadians in Union Blue: Volunteering for the Cause in America's Civil War. The book is published by University of British Columbia Press this May. Congratulations from all of us!
The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
