Battle of Waterloo: Local legacies 200 years laterExport this event to calendar

Thursday, December 3, 2015 — 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM EST

Why is our region, our city, a university, a public library and more named after a tiny farming village in Belgium? Why does the name Wellington appear in towns and on street signs all over Ontario? How did a bloody battle 200 years ago capture the popular imagination?

Join four professors from the Faculty of Arts at Waterloo Public Library for a lively discussion of the historical event and its many legacies both far away and right here in our own back yard.
