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.

Lynde House Museum is the perfect backdrop to our discussion of the War of 1812.

Today’s discussion takes us deeper in to the legend of this hero of history, General Isaac Brock.
