The Flamborough Heritage Society will feature a presentation on Hamilton: A People’s History by Bill Freeman.
Bill is an award-winning historian, author, and screenwriter. He first began writing a series of books for youth while living in Hamilton. Each book focused on a
different industrial setting in the 1870’s. He then went on to writing books for adults, working in the film industry, and writing 2 plays.
Bill will share with us the story of the city beginning with the earliest habitation, through the War of 1812, and at its peak as a major manufacturing centre. We will also hear about how the railway and Hamilton’s geography shaped the cities development and the many people who contributed to the city’s history.
