SUBJECTS: Jón Sigurðsson, 1811-1879: Monuments; Manitoba; Winnipeg; Icelandic Canadians/Americans; Canadiens d'origine islandaise-; Histoire; Canadiens; Américains d'origine islandaise. Story of cross border patriotism. In 1910, Icelanders in North America contributed generously to a statue of Icelandic patriot Jon Sigurdsson in Iceland. Old country Icelanders were so pleased they commissioned a replica of the statue to stand in the Legislative grounds at Winnipeg, in the province of Manitoba, where an annual ceremony is held celebrating the bonds between the two largest Icelandic groups in the world (close to one fifth of Icelanders emmigrated to North America, mostly during the late 19th and early 20th century). The author has had fortuitous and generous access to the documents of this remarkable event in preparing this book. N° de réf. du libraire 35763
