“Eyes right!” When a military troop is marching, this is the command that is reserved for showing the highest degree of respect. That’s the way we feel toward Hamilton Halton Brant’s proud military heritage. Tour through our region and you’ll discover historic sites and museums that tell a story of freedom in Canada that spans the centuries. From barn quilts that illustrate important themes from our past to awe-inducing air shows that bring the skies of World War II to life, we celebrate Canada’s peacekeeping efforts with pride every day of the year.
