BOOK - Bluebloods and Rednecks - Discord and Rebellion in the 1830'S
By Charles D. Anderson
Published by General Store Publishing, Renfrew, 1996

Softcover...20.95 (C$)

Image of book From the birth of the Orange Lodge to the Battled of the windmills, the eastern Ontario counties of Leeds and Grenville became notorious for political violence in the 1820's and 30's. The author explores the political and social motivations of the warring factions in this mostly rural, isolated community. In the years leading up to the Rebellion of 1837, three successive elections were set aside as a result of mayhem at the polls.

This is a thoroughly researched history of the events in what is now Eastern Ontario that helped cause the 1837 Rebellion in Upper Canada, and brought about political reform in pre-Confederation Canada.
