I love that small Sir John A. Is it the pose-able figure? I bought one for my son and it came with a small (detachable) bottle...

Oh yes, the John A. pose-able figure is great, Theresa -- mine came with detachable glasses, as in spectacles, with a small table and 3 books.
Your web site is great. I love the picture at the top and am intrigued by your books and reviews. I plan to check them out now, they sound right up my line.

My name is Steven Millikin from St. Andrews, NB and my great great grandfather is Sir John A. Macdonald.
my family has been keeping a secret for a long time now and me being the last to tell the story, it's time. I can't find anybody that is willing to help me tell it to Canadians, can you please help, this is real history
I do not want to take away from his great service to Canadians only tell the truth.

I have several artifacts pertaining to Sir John A. MacDonald. I would like to a chance to make a documentary or tv mini series or book . I had Scott from the Canadian Pickers visit me last summer in St. Andrews NB and he made me an offer of being on his show this year 2014, and CBC 4 rooms but I think it's not the right venue . I think with Sir John's 200th birthday next year that it maybe its time this untold history is told before it's lost to history. I would like your opinion and see if it's something you can help me with. P.S. January 10th was celebrated by our family as his real birthday.
