One of my relatives who works as a translator for the city of Gamlakarleby just wrote to tell me that next summer they will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Halkokari when the British tried to burn the city, but didn't succeed. I remember reading about it and also that some of the Kankkonen men were in the battle. I think one of them was rewarded by the Czar for his actions. So next summer will be a good one to visit the city and partake of the celebration.
