Hello all.
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?

History holds it was whisky, rum, gin, wine, beer and some kind of food.

Sir John A. MacDonald was aghast to find out that someone discovered his mistress and added her to the stew

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.



Tastes of 1864

Presented by: Experience PEI

Join a Father or Lady of Confederation on a culinary walking tour of downtown Charlottetown.

Sample some of the succulent dishes and drinks that were served during the Charlottetown Conference in 1864.

Indulge yourself on oysters, meats, soups, pastries and local wines, beers and spirits
as a modern-day delegate to the Conference.

Sir John A. turned up in a steam boat with the hold filled to the deckhead with casks of gin.

Other than that ... the diet of the British Empire circa 1864 ... Mutton, spuds (no veg.)

... and they all died. That is how the Canadian states were incorporated in the Union just after the civil war.
