The Ottawa Public Library presents Shipwrecks and Sorrows: Maiden Voyage of the 100th Regiment as part of the History Series for Adults Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Carlingwood branch at 281 Woodroffe Avenue.
Shipping out to Canada in 1805, the new 100th Regiment of 900 Irish soldiers aboard five troopships met with maritime disasters in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Only seven survived one shipwreck off Newfoundland while 340 men, women and children died. Two other troopships were wrecked off Nova Scotia.
This program is presented by historical researcher, Kurt Johnson, a board member of the Goulbourn Museum, in commemoration of the War of 1812.
