1) 1928 Golden Jubilee Airmail
2) Canada/British North America (BNA) – Confederate Postal Correspondence during the U.S. Civil War (1861-1865)

1) Charles Livermore
2) Ron Majors

This video includes two presentations.

1) The 50th anniversary of the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) was in 1928. To celebrate, two special airmail flights to the CNE in Toronto took place on 24 August 1928. One was from Quebec City, the other from Windsor. On 29 August, flights in the reverse direction, from the CNE to Quebec City and to Windsor took place. Charles Livermore discusses the flights and the First Flight Covers flown on them.

2) About 51,000 Canadians went to the U.S. to fight in the Civil War, which lasted from 1861 to 1865. Many trans-border covers exist during this period as a result of Canada’s involvement. Covers from Canada to the U.S. are mostly franked with stamps from the 1859-1868 Decimal Issue, it being current at that time. Providing as backdrop the history of the Civil War, Ron Majors discusses and illustrates some of the cross-border covers he has come across.
