Using microfilmed pages from the local newspaper, The Daily Intelligencer, Editor Laurel Bishop tells the story of unsung heroes from the Belleville area during the First World War. This is the story of people of all ages who supported those on the front lines in the fields of Flanders and the plains of Northern France. This is the story of Belleville, written each day, each week, as the First World War progressed. News stories, editorials and commentaries appear as they were written and can be said to tell the story of every small town in Canada, where those at home supported their families and friends in Europe. While researching this book, Laurel Bishop looked through thousands of pages of The Intelligencer to find the fascinating tales that create Belleville’s unique story. It is a fitting tribute to those on the Home Front who gave so selflessly to the war effort.
