Sir John A. had no closer confidant in Kingston than his fellow Father of Confederation, Sir Alexander Campbell. He worked in the law with Macdonald and was also the Father of Confederation's main political organizer, a "fixer," a crucial role now and then. The two, in fact, are buried near each other at Kingston's Cataraqui Cemetery.
