Great Canadian “Archives Canada” Fake, 1900

We’ve just found the oldest version of Canada’s most famous battlefield photo, published, by the Graphic, on Feb. 14, 1900, only seven weeks after it was taken.

It proves conclusively, what we’ve maintained all along, that Canada’s most famous “combat” picture is a fake, in more ways than one…

And Archives Canada should stop selling it, and publishing it, as if it was some kind of “Great Canadian Heritage Moment,” instead of a typical cheesy Hollywood fake that it is…

I give up. Show me the Hodgson-Miller Fake
