Book review

Here is the story of the rise, spread, and fall of the Orange Order in Canada. Beginning in 1980, the Order grew syeadily in many parts of the country during the nineteenth century, reaching its peak in the early part of the twentieth century. Since the, with the changing Canadian identity, the Order has declined in popularity and since 1945 has almost disappeared as a major presence.

The Sash Canada Wore explains how this immigrant, ethnic ideology widely known for its Protestant Irishness, opposition to Roman Catholics, and loyalty to the British royal family, managed to become to dominant, especially in Ontario, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland.

The study is based on historical documents of the national Order, the manuscript records of more than fifty lodges, and the results of extensive field studies in Orange communities in every province.

This significant contribution to Canadian social history will appeal not only to historians and geographers, but to members of the Order, and to all those who remember 'King Billy' on his white horse at the head of the parade.
