   “Skidaddle Ridge, New Brunswick, cam by itd name because it was a hideout
   for draft dodgers. The ”Skidaddlers were Democrats who, not in sympathy
   with the Republican Party during the Civil War; “skidaddled” out of the
   country. Most of them returned home after the war, but many stayed to
   settle in New Brunswick and Southern Ontario.

   in this region."
