"An international incident referred to as the Aroostook War or ""Pork and Beans War"". The conflict resulted as part of an international boundary dispute between the United States. Although several British soldiers were captured, nobody was killed during the war. In fact, local militia units did not engage in any significant combat. One of the most dramatic events was actually when two Canadian militia were injured by Black Bears."

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of various minor places so called, in several counties, all first recorded fairly late. The etymology is generally Old English brād ‘broad’ + burh ‘fort’ ( see Bury ), but Bradbury in County Durham is recorded in Old English as Brydbyrig, the first element probably being Old English bred ‘board’. This is probably also the first element in Bradbury, Cheshire.
