Steve,

Thank you for the link. Regretfully, the exhibit seems to be strongly slanted towards the Upper Canadian (Ontario) experience during the war. However, there is the mandatory nod to de Salaberry and his defeat of the invading American army at Chateauguay. Unfortunately, the war in the Maritmes appears to have been overlooked. We, in the Maritmes, waged a successful naval war against the Americans and invaded/occupied what is now Northern Maine. At least that is my perception based on what I have read about the exhibit. I would like to hear from someone who has actually been there.

All the best,

Gary
