“Traitors’” Feet in the Air

Image

Branded as turncoats and accused of committing treason, eight men were hung in public view by the British near the end of the War of 1812. This image depicting feet in the air is a part of a mural by Lori Le Mare.  (http://www.pinterest.com/mmrocks/fieldcote-museum-exhibit-by-lori-lemare/)

The Fieldcote Museum in Ancaster Ontario has become a centre of the “Bloody Assize” commemoration.  Apparently, several visitors to the museum have acknowledged a family connection to these infamous Upper Canadian settlers. Mark McNeil (mmcneil@thespec.com) wrote in the Hamilton Spectator: “Time has a way of revising attitudes. Yesterday’s traitor might be seen today as an unfortunate rebel. One man’s turncoat is another man’s hero. And maybe the British army was doing things that deserved disloyalty, such as throwing people out of their homes and eating their food”.
