Patriot War Along the Michigan-Canada Border

By Shaun J. McLaughlin

General non-fiction | Paperback, eBook


During the Patriot War, Canadian rebels and their American supporters attacked Upper Canada 13 times in 1838 in a misguided campaign of liberation. Hundreds of men on both sides of the border took up arms to bring democracy to Canadians. Using more than 20 firsthand accounts, The Patriot War Along the Michigan-Canada Border describes the 1837 rebellion in Southwestern Ontario, armed raids on that part of the province, and the fates of the captured raiders. Dozens of raiders died, hanged or were exiled to Tasmania. 190 pages. This book, and the Patriot War Along the New York-Canada Border, recall the stories, triumphs and sacrifices of rebels, raiders and defenders around Lake Erie and the Detroit River.
