In this roundtable, we look at Confederation through the words of those who lived it.  Drawing on letters written to J.R. Smallwood between 1948 and 1951, we consider how Newfoundlanders and Labradorians understood themselves and their world at the time of Confederation, and what these understandings might mean for us today.
