HISTORY TIDBIT: HISTORIC FOOD

Everything has a history – even food. On July 30th, 1898, W. K. Kellogg perfected his recipe for his now-famous Kellogg’s Corn Flakes®. The Americans kept it to themselves for a while though. It wasn’t available in Canada until 1914, and didn’t go across the pond to Britain until 1922. Advertisements

HISTORIC FAILURES: SPANISH ARMADA TRIES TO INVADE ENGLAND

In July, 1588, one hundred and thirty warships, twenty-two of them fearsome fighting galleons, set sail from Spain, bent on invading England.

The area was originally the home of the Carrier and Lheidli T’enneh First Nations, but when white men settled there, they called the town they built Prince George, in honour […]

HISTORY-MAKING KIDS: THE NEWSBOYS STRIKE OF 1899

One sure way to attract kids to history is to find some that involves kids. Before child labour laws succeeded in making it illegal for children to work in the U.S.A., city streets were full of youngsters selling newspapers. Known as newsies, the kids rose early and picked up bundles of newspapers which cost them […]
