FROM 14th COLONY TO CONFEDERATION: 1749 – 1867
ALEX BOUTILIER has written extensively on the early social history of the Maritimes, and is currently completing his third book on the topic. In this lecture his focus will be twofold. He will assess the role of both the Governors and Lieutenant Governors in bringing Nova Scotia into Confederation. He will also describe the experiences of the citizens who were under their rule and how their fight to be heard also influenced the future direction of the 14th colony.
