Halifax Citadel

Portrait of A Military Fortress

Book - 2001
Rate this:
The Halifax Citadel was a great bastion of the British Empire, the impregnable shield of the "Warden of the North".

Today it is one of Canada's most famous landmarks: every year thousands visit the star-shaped fortress, watch the traditional firing of the noon-day gun and roam the ramparts and the fortified buildings where British soldiers were once garrisoned. They watch the re-enactment of military exercises by men and women in authentic 19th-century military uniforms, and enjoy the music of the pipe band in the Parade. This richly-illustrated history conveys the lively martial pageantry of this unparalleled attraction.

This book offers background on the Halifax Citadel and its history, exploring the lives of soldiers and their families stationed in Hailfax in the 19th century.
