The spring edition of the Friends of Fort York’s quarterly newsletter, Fife and Drum was released recently. Loads of maps and pictures in this issue, and articles include:
- The Franklin Expedition’s 1825 Toronto connection
A first visit to Fort York recounted by Jeffrey Remedios of Arts & Crafts records
- What’s being planned and built around the fort
- Burying & burning of trash in and around Fort York featuring the Wellington Destructor!
You can download a PDF of the current issue here. But you can also go here to subscribe to Fife and Drum, so it will arrive in your inbox. Here you’ll also find back issues of Fife and Drum to download.

Fife & Drum lists upcoming events and recent goings-on at the fort, but it also has, since the Friends began publishing it in 1996, exhaustively researched essays and stories about the fort, Toronto and related history. I serve as volunteer director on the Friends of Fort York board, the volunteer advocacy organization that has helped look after the interests of City of Toronto’s premier museum site.
