L'Orignal is a Franco-Ontarian village and former municipality, now part of Champlain Township in eastern Ontario, Canada. Its population in 2016 was 1,450. L'Orignal likely took its name from its location on the Ottawa River, once known as Pointe à l'Orignal (French for "Moose Point"), where moose crossed the river. It was one of the seigneuries of New France.
The Rev. Charles W. Gordon
Ordained a Presbyterian minister
When the Great War broke out in 1914, Gordon was quick to enlist. He volunteered for service with the 43rd Cameron Highlanders as an army chaplain at 54. This experience greatly influenced his writing during these years, as he focused on the war cause, the soldiers' lives, and the deaths he witnessed daily. His service also brought Gordon personal tragedy when his friend and mentor, R.M. Thomson, was killed in action.
