Black History in Grey County

Black citizens have been a part of Grey County, since the very first non-Native settlers arrived in the northernmost part of the Queen's Bush. Some of these early pioneers were born in Canada, whilst others had only recently slipped the bonds of slavery in the Upper South.

Grey Battalions in the Great War

Beginning of the European War

Great Britain declared war against Germany on August 4, 1914. The Dominion of Canada was a colony of the British Empire. As such, Canada automatically became at war with Germany too. Many Canadians, especially in Ontario, wanted to help.
