Websnark: A moment of history, a remembrance of heroism
I’d never heard this story — for that matter, didn’t know there’d been an explosion in Halifax to begin with. Somehow everything involving World War I was skipped in almost every history class I ever had with the exception of International History in college, and, well, Canada wasn’t considered international enough.
I’d heard of it, but only as a huge explosion. I didn’t know anything about Vince Coleman.
Like 32 footsteps was saying, it’s a shame we only know about his heroism because he died for it.
