Joseph Brant

John Brant died of cholera and his remains were placed beside his those of father's in his tomb.
In 1850, their bodies were moved from Burlington (then known as Wellington Square) to Brantford.

This Tomb is Erected to the Memory of 
Thayendanegea

AND
Ahyouwaighs

this is a holiday weekend in Canada, generally called the Civic Holiday, but each community can give it a unique name
and where I live it is named after Joseph Brant

Joseph Brant has always interested me and so has the Chapel of the Mohawks. Thanks for sharing.

I think naming a holiday locally is a splendid idea. I think I may start suggesting that although I bet it could cause controversy. Sometimes people just don't like change even if they don't like what is there to be changed.
