Part 2: The War of 1812 with Historical Author, Tom Taylor and Lynde House Museum Curator, Monica Effenberger

Welcome to part two of a special episode of The Wellspring Podcast recorded at Lynde House Museum in Whitby, Ontario where I was joined by Tom Taylor, historical fiction author and War of 1812 aficionado and museum curator, Monica Effenberger.
