  In the Civil War, no other town of old Ontario furnished more men, compared with population, nor braver soldiers than the town of Canadice. Those who early enlisted to sustain our flag in the hour of peril are listed below.  A brief, honorable record is that of Canadice's soldiers.  They are not forgotten.  The nation remembers them.  If tears for the sufferings of those men who fell would embalm them, their remains would never perish, their memory never cease.
