In 1842, Charles Dickens visited several prominent cities in the United States and British North America. He subsequently published a travelogue, American Notes, detailing his experience in North American society. He arrived in Halifax Harbour in January of 1842, and the fledgling garrison town would be incorporated as the City of Halifax in the same year.
