War and the Homefront

[ Project Plans | Essential Questions | Knowledge Hunt | Glossary | Links ]

Alberta was deeply affected by the events and aftermath of the North-West Rebellion, the Boer War, and the First and Second World Wars, on both the war and home fronts. These are the stories of army officers, flying "aces," "barnstormers," legendary constables, and adventurers. The narratives of these Mavericks will facilitate student understanding of how war contributed to the development of Alberta's identity.
