The History Speakers Series: The Black Swamp Gang

January 18 @ 7:00 pm

Around 1880 the whole of north Simcoe County was terrorized by the Black Swamp Gang who robbed farms and then intimidated the farmers into silence through barn-burnings and other threatened vandalism.  The gang had formed around Big Sandy McDuff, the ‘baddest’ of the bad, a gigantic and temperamental Jarratt farmer – a tavern brawler who never lost a fight.

Join us to hear historian Dave Town tell this largely untold story of the gang and the societal background that facilitated their exploits and the vigilantism of the era.
