The Irish Connection: The Fenian Threat, London West and the Harris Family

The Harris Family of Eldon House was well aware of the issues influencing the Fenian Brotherhood and their uprisings in Canada and the United States between the years 1866-1871. This exhibition will illustrate how the “Fenian Raids” impacted those living in Upper Canada, through the diaries and letters of the Harris Family, while highlighting their own involvement in the defence of the empire.
