New Heritage Minutes Tells Story Of Richard Pierpoint, Black Loyalist, War Of 1812 Hero (VIDEO)

Remember Heritage Minutes, those bite-sized ads that told a story from Canada's storied past?

Well, after a seven-year hiatus, the Historica Dominion Institute, the group who created the original batch are releasing two new minutes.

The first, which was released to the public on Monday, tells the story of Richard Pierpoint, a black Loyalist and hero during the War of 1812.

The second will be released next year and will tell the story of Canada's natives during the War of 1812.

Both videos were partially-funded by the federal government as part of its celebrations of the bicentenary of the War of 1812.

What do you think of the new ad?
