    The Battle:
    The Battle of Vimy Ridge was the first time all four divisions of the Canadian Expeditionary Forces fought together under a Canadian-born commander. It marked a change in out-dated war tactics and strategies (demonstrated by the blood-bath at The Somme). It has been cited as a defining moment in the creation of a united Canadian identity.

    The Song:
    Lizzy's song "Vimy Ridge" was written after her first visit to the Vimy Ridge Memorial in 2005. It was named a finalist in both the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (2010) and the USA Songwriting Competition (2011). The song was recorded on her second album HOME which received a Canadian Folk Music Award Nomination in 2011 for Traditional Singer of the Year.
