I've been running a series of "This Day In History" on my Twitter feed and thought that this might be an interesting topic to add here. When I worked at the House of Commons in Ottawa, I spent many lunch hours in the Library of Parliament going through the collection to build up a timeline of Celtic events. Some of the books that I used were:

A day early on this one but I'm doing a live-in experience with my children at Upper Canada Village and they didn't have internet in the 1860's.

September 15, 2012 - 178 Scottish immigrants arrived in Pictou, Nova Scotia after enduring an 11 week North Atlantic crossing aboard the brig “Hector”. Eighteen children didn’t survive the voyage which was the first of the large scale immigrations of Highland Scots.

Oct 5, 1871 - Unsuccessful Fenian raid led by William B. O’Donoghue at Pembina in Manitoba. They did manage to capture the Hudson’s Bay outpost but this was somewhat of a hollow victory as it was unoccupied at the time. American troops were soon on the scene to escort the leader and his men back to the United States.
