Montreal is a great city to visit. It is a gem ofCanada. Apparently, many people during theCivil War thought the same thing. Montrealquickly became a popular place to visit. Somecities would not welcome the number of spiesand conspirators to their city but Montrealseemed to embrace them. Montreal citizenswalking down the street ran the risk ofbrushing shoulders with Confederate spiesand sympathizers as well as some Unionsupporters. In his talk Frank will share someinteresting stories of the people that came toMontreal and the city that embraced them.
