150 Years of Canada: Year-by-Year Fascinating Facts
2 journalers for this copy...
My husband and I bought this book at Old Fort Erie in the summer of 2017. We have kept it in our glovebox and read it bit by bit as we've traveled around over the past year-- it's very interesting.
While some of the fascinating facts are things that everyone learns in school and some of the recent ones are things we reneger from our own lifetimes, we learned a few things about our country's past too.
As it is the last day of Canada's 150th year of existence, it seems an appropriate time to send this on is way for a new reader to enjoy!

Castle Kilbride in Baden, Ontario Canada on Saturday, June 30, 2018
Released 10 mos ago (6/30/2018 UTC) at Castle Kilbride in Baden, Ontario Canada
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
On our way home from London this afternoon, my husband and I passed through my childhood hometown of Baden. Because there have been new statues unveiled since we were there at the beginning of 2017, we decided to stop and take a walk along the Prime Ministers Path. I think all of the PMs along the path so far are mentioned in this book, and the newest one (unveiled just two days ago), Kim Campbell, is definitely the subject of one of the Fascinating Facts as she was Canada's first female PM! I thought this path, along which one will eventually be able to see all of our Prime Ministers in statue form, was a fitting place for this book as it shares snap shots of what was going on year-by-year throughout our history.
If you've found this book, thanks for picking it up and checking out its journal! If you're new to bookcrossing, welcome. We'd love it if you'd stick around with us a while. I really hope that you enjoy both this book and the whole bookcrossing experience!
This book was released as part of a couple of Release Challenges-- the 2018 "Canada Days" Release Challenge and the 2018 "52 Towns in 52 Weeks" Release Challenge, in which Baden was lucky #13 for me!

Journal Entry 4
Sewanee, Tennessee USA on Thursday, July 19, 2018
I was on a girl trip and I found this in Sewanee, Tennessee at the Cross which is a memorial to veterans. It is a gorgeous setting. The University of the South is located there. We went to the university to visit the church on the campus and the Chapel of the Apostles. The Chapel of the Apostles was included in the April issue of Southern Living. Both are beautiful as well as the stone buildings on the campus.
We read some pages that corresponded to the years we were interested in because one of the girls on the trip lived in Canada for a few years when her husband played football in Canada and my brother-in-law is from Canada. The informative pages are an easy, short read.
