The Heritage Minutes are back! Last night, the Historica-Dominion Institute premiered a new minute at Toronto’s Royal Cinema. The 60-second clip tells the story of Richard Pierpoint, a black Loyalist and hero during the War of 1812. The second Minute will be released to the public next year. It tells the story of Canada’s natives during the War of 1812. What do you think of the new minute?
