TO­DAY IN HIS­TORY

North Bay Nugget - - NEWS -

in 1773, the ship, “hec­tor,” ar­rived at Brown’s Point, near Pic­tou, N.S. hec­tor car­ried 178 Scot­tish im­mi­grants -- the first large wave of im­mi­gra­tion that made Scots the pre­dom­i­nant eth­nic group in Nova Sco­tia. A replica ship was later built to com­mem­o­rate the voy­age and is on dis­play in Pic­tou har­bour.

in 1821, in­de­pen­dence was pro­claimed for Costa Rica, gu­atemala, hon­duras, Nicaragua and El Sal­vador.
