Description: This site includes a complete collection of historical documents that relate to the death of William Robinson in 1868. Robinson had settled on Salt Spring Island in the British colony of British Columbia a decade before his death as part of a contingent of Black Americans fleeing persecution and slavery in the years leading to the American Civil War. Visitors can look at the collection of archival documents to interpret the raw material of the past and to ask the larger questions like, how do we know what happened in the past?
