June 28th Paul Bunyan Day

Paul Bunyan was created during the Papineau rebellion in 1837 in Canada. He is a French Canadian creation though most people in the Untied States feel he is a part of their history as well. Accompanied by “Babe” he roamed North America forming the Great Lakes and provided leadership for the logging industry which suffered from overwork and unsafe conditions. Louis Papineau was a political figure in Canada at the time and is now a political party in Canada. With someone like Paul Bunyan, and Babe, on your side it was hard to ignore the demands loggers required to make their lives better.
