New Brunswick, Saint John Harbour Defensive Network, Red Head Battery
Canada

Red Head Battery was part of Saint John Harbour Defensive Network. A six-gun earthwork with two magazines, completed in 1866 designed to cover the southeastern channel of Saint John Harbour. However, the guns were not mounted until 1878 with four 32-pounder smoothbores.

During World War I the battery position was used as a camp for the 9th Seige Battery, and in World War II a government radio station and a dummy gunposition were located at Red Head.

The panorama shown the inside one of the expense magazines. Even though the heavy underbrush was cleared in 2005 it is well grown again and covers almost everything. It is hard to see the structures until you are almost on top of them.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
