Fact Fiction Friday ~ The Mounties!

Continuing our new and regular feature here at Historical Fiction.  

Each Friday we will publish an historical fact based upon the date. Each fact will be accompanied by a book(s) title and perhaps a review or other snippet.

Forty years in Canada : reminiscences of the…23rd May 1873 - Today celebrates the day when Canada introduced the North West Mounted Police Force.

The book is Forty Years in Canada by Samuel B Steele, which I have added to my library list.

There is some archive material online for those who, like me have a relative who served in the Mounted Police Force. This archive online is a fascinating resource for the genealogist or someone who is simply curious!
