- Hello List:
One of my jobs at the Reference Library is to make displays for the Arthur Conan Doyle Room. I want to do one on Brigadier Gerard and Doyle's other fiction set in the Napoleonic era. I realize that it was happening across the ocean from the War of 1812; but any suggestions, comments etc. by people on this list who have read the stories would be useful, since you have insight into the military aspects. (how [in]accurate were the stories, what Gerard's uniform would've looked like so that I can find the right picture for the backdrop, any place in Toronto that would loan or rent something suitable to use as a prop, some essential books about the wars for backgroud research - that sort of thing.) Thank you. Marilyn P.
