43rd Ottawa and Carleton Battalion of Rifles �running of the guns� with John Sparks of Bells Corners as a volunteer c.1868
On May 24, 1868 troops from the 43rd Ottawa and Carleton Battalion of Rifles, locally the Carleton Blazers, as well as local militia volunteers gathered at Parliament Hill for a celebratory �running of the guns� in honour of Her Majesty Queen Victoria�s birthday. These �fire of joy� celebrations were used to mark national milestones including Dominion Day, Victoria Day and more recently the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 2012. As a crowd of spectators gathered on Wellington Street in front of the nearly-complete Centre Block (note the unfinished roof of the Victoria Tower) troops fired blanks into the air in quick succession; much to the crowd�s enjoyment. Click to see more about the 43rd Battalion of Infantry (otherwise known as the Carleton Blazers).

Carleton County: History and Chronology

  • Prior to the establishment of the county form of local government in 1849-50, Carleton existed only for land location. The area that became Carleton County was considered to be in the Johnstown District of Upper Canada (1798-1822), the Bathurst District (1822-1838), and in the Dalhousie District of Upper Canada/Canada West (1838-1849). Upper Canada became Canada West in 1841. See FamilySearch site for history description of places in Carleton County.
