The History Wrangler performs at our Cowboy Trail Party!
Blog Post: Wed, Aug 03, 2016
Rob Lennard, The History Wrangler, was here on Monday, August 1st and he put on a great concert! He was funny and he challenged the audience with questions about people such as rancher John Ware and Senator Pat Burns and William Van Horne. Rob Lennard told the story of how Sir John A. MacDonald's wife, Lady Agnes MacDonald, rode through the mountains on the front of the CPR locomotive - for a thousand kilometres!- when the Canadian Pacific Railway was nearly complete. Rob’s sidekick, Eden Feddema, told an amusing story about Fred Bagley – the fifteen year old bugler for the Royal Northwest Mounted Police. While looking back on a Rocky Museum column from 2004, we read that there was snow on the August long weekend, so we are grateful that the weather cooperated so nicely for our Cowboy Trail Party!
