I have been searching but cannot find any information on food served to delegates during the Charlottetown Conference in 1864 and surrounding events.
Does anyone know if the banquet menus were ever documented?
You appear to have a computer so maybe you should become familiar with the 'search' feature.
And pack your bags for next September and you can eat and drink what they did.
In 2014, Canadians will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the historic Charlottetown Conference that led to the creation of Canada.
In September 1864, the Fathers of Confederation met in Charlottetown where they developed the idea for creating the nation of Canada. Because of that meeting,
Charlottetown is known as the Birthplace of Confederation.
