On our walk back from Coronation Park, KC and I cut through the Military Burying Ground at Fort York.
This was Toronto's third military cemetery. Buried there are soldiers, veterans, their wives and children who died between 1862 and 1911. A majority died from natural causes like asthma, consumption and aneurisms but many had drowned. Most burials took place before 1870, when the British army turned Fort York over to the Canadian military and returned home.
In 1970, the Toronto Historical Board mounted surviving markers in a brick wall.
It's interesting to see the remnants of old Toronto against the more modern Toronto.
