After the Rebellion in Upper Canada in 1837, unrest continued for some time in the "colonies." Cobourg had its own bit of excitement with what has become known as The Cobourg Conspiracy.

The Cobourg Museum Foundation, as part of its theme, "Heinous, Heroic, and High Flyers" has prepared a video of the historic Cobourg Conspiracy. At our meeting on February 22, 2022 via Zoom, we will see the
video and be introduced to the panel that was inspired by the story and did the research and production of
this video. We will learn about the creative elements that go into making such stories come to life.

Join us on-line via Zoom, Tuesday evening, February 22, 2022 at 7:30 p.m., and learn about the Cobourg Conspiracy. Please register in advance for this webinar:
