For World at War 1 all this militias came together to create the Canadian Expeditionary force, this force was mostly full of volunteers there we around 619,646 soldiers in the force at that time in which they fought many battles during World at War 1. One of the most famous one is Vimy Ridge, at Vimy Ridge all the allied forces could not get through since the ridge Germany had a an advantage in a high location in which their army was placed. Canada as a young nation no one believed that Canada would get passed it. But on April 12, 1917 Canadian Soldiers had full control over the ridge, but this had not been achieve easily it cost the life of 10,602 Canadians. For World at War 2 in the 1940s The Canadian Militia was renamed to the Canadian Army.
Of which, almost 173,000 Canadians were wounded and about 67,000 Canadians had lost their lives by November 11th, 1918. These casualties were devastating in numbers. Canada needed to regain the good faith of its people, despite the fact that it was still a colony of Britain. Canadians knew very little about why the war had started, or the significance of the events that instigated it. But, Canadians were called upon to fight it, therefore now was the greatest need for there to be better compensation for our returning Veterans than ever before.
It was a cold morning in Newark, NJ, on the 16th of February 1756 when my good friend Aaron Burr, Jr. was born. My family lived next door to the Burr residence and became very friendly with the Reverend Aaron Burr, Sr and his wife Esther. Aaron and I attended Princeton University where we originally studied theology, but later gave up it began the study of law in Litchfield, Connecticut. Our studies were put on hold while we served during the Revolutionary War, under Generals Benedict Arnold, George Washington, and Israel Putnam. During the Revolutionary War, Aaron and I accompanied General Benedict Arnold's expedition into Canada in 1775, a difficult trek of over 500 miles in the middle of winter.
These studies, along with his experience of the Great Depression, led him to conclude that political action was necessary to alleviate the suffering he saw around him. Douglas had many accomplishments within his 44 year long political career including; being the first to introduce the Medicare Plan, being first to introduce a Farm Security Act in North America as well as introducing paid holidays for workers. Tommy Douglas brought great change to Canada and deserved the title as "Most Important Canadian" as surveyed by the CBC in 2005. The Universal Medical Plan was established in 1962, one year after Douglas left provincial politics. Although the Medicare Plan did not start until Douglas stepped down, he had brought the idea in 1959 while being the leader of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation (CCF).
Most of the men from the 4th Reinforcements came from the Monaro area. For Joseph to walk across the mountains from the coast to Goulburn to enlist at 27 years of age and so late in the war, he must have been motivated by patriotic fervour brought on by reports of the Gallipoli campaign which would have been sweeping Australia by then. (Gallipoli landing was 25th April 1915 and evacuation was 20th December 1915). After 6 months training in Australia 4/55th Battalion embarked from Sydney 4th September 1916 and disembarked Plymouth England 29th October 1916. More training in England followed until they embarked from Folkstone England 14th December 1916 and disembarked at Boulogne France 15th December 1916 and were marched into the base depot at Etaples.
Women in World War II When the war across seas broke out in 1939 Canada was called to the front as a part of the British Empire. Canada's work force was now severely depleted. Everyone remembers the prestigious men and women of Canada for their effort in the war helping the Allied side defeat the German enemy. We must remember though that the soldiers were not a self sufficient army, navy, and air force but rather part of the larger war machine that was Canada. When Canadians think of the war they must remember the country that stood behind our soldiers in Europe.

Life In The Trenches Of The Western Front When World War 1 broke out in 1914, a lot of people joined up for the Army to fight for their country and to fight against the Germans, Italians and the Austria- Hungarians (mostly the Germans). There are many reasons why people joined up for the Army. For the people who did join up for the army they expected the war to last for a couple of months and that it would be over by Christmas. But if any of them had known that the war was going to last for 4 years till 1918, the people who joined up for the army probably wouldn’t of joined the army. The British and French united together to battle the Germans on the North-West of France.
Their presence marked the 90th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and commemorated Canadian soldiers who fought and died on Easter Monday 1917. A patriotic scene to behold, students dressed in replica World War I uniform shirts, proudly waving Canadian flags, spontaneously singing rousing renditions of “Oh Canada,” whilst the commemoration slogan “Birth of a Nation” was flashed on oversized television screens and sported on the event’s tourist memorabilia. How did Canadian students of all different ethnic and class backgrounds come to be at Vimy at the same time? Better yet, why did such a multitude of young adults pay to be at the same place at the same time? In order to understand why over thirty-five hundred Canadian students – accompanied by numerous teachers, parents, veterans, news crews and dignitaries – made their way over the Atlantic Ocean to the Vimy Memorial, one must trace the history of the “Vimy myth” from its founding, conception and creation to its national perpetuation.
