Dan Buchanan is “The History Guy of Brighton.” He is engaged in many history activities related to local and Ontario history, working from his home in Brighton, Ontario. As a guest speaker, Dan provides fascinating stories of Ontario history presented with humour and passion. See www.danbuchananhistoryguy.com.
He has written three books and is going to speak with us about his second book, “38 Hours To Montreal: William Weller and the Governor General’s Race of 1840”. It tells the story of an amazing sleigh ride in February 1840, all the way from Toronto to Montreal – in under 38 hours. The book is presented as a road trip, with the reader sitting on the bench with Mr. Weller as he drives through every little town and village on the Kingston Road and the King’s Highway between Toronto and Montreal. There is a bit of local history about each place as the trip progresses and also there is also lots of historical context which explains why Mr. Weller is driving the GG to Montreal in such a hurry.
