Spend some time with The Valiants. Located next to the National War Memorial, the life-size bronze busts and statues immortalize 14 men and women who distinguished themselves serving Canada through five major periods of war.
The actions of The Valiants go back almost 200 years before Confederation and up to the Second World War. Among them are the Comte de Frontenac, who defended New France from the British in 1690.
Laura Secord, the only female Valiant, alerted the commander of the British outpost of an American surprise attack during the War of 1812.
