A photograph of the surviving troops of Thorold No. 2 Company of the Lincoln Militia, who assisted with the maintaining of Camp Thorold in 1866 against the Fenians. The camp had trained over 10,000 men in just over six weeks and would later serve as a practice location for different regiment drills. The barracks were located at Pine and Albert Street. Although the threat of the Fenians did not arrive at Camp Thorold, Company No. 2 was there the day the Town Hall bell rang March 9, 1866 signalling a possible attack on St. Catharines. The photograph was taken in 1893 and includes the names of the 1866 veterans of No. 2 Company.
