Finding the Connection between General Isaac Brock & “Sobbing Sophia” Shaw in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
by Richard Ong – – It has been said that a life that’s well lived defines a person in remembrance. But one brief, precious episode in a person’s lifetime could change the course of the river of fate.
This is how legends begin, and one such story started with the final meeting between Sophia Shaw and Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, as he rode his horse hard towards the direction of Queenston Heights. Many books and blogs had been written about their enduring romance.
At least one play was composed based on their love affair and the war that ended their relationship in tragedy.
