Church at Batoche -  24 kb

 

This is the actual church which Riel and the Metis used during the Rebellion. Due to its age, at this time it needs two cables in order to keep it standing. You can see the black strip on the side, between the roof and the middle windows. Cables from the ground are attached to both ends of that stip on both sides of the church.
