BOOK - Through So Many Dangers: The Memoirs and Adventures of Robert Kirk, Late of the Royal Highland Regiment
Edited by Ian M. McCulloch & Timothy J. Todish
Introduction: Stephen Brumwell
Artwork: Robert Griffing
Published by Robins Brass Studio, Montreal, 2004

Softcover... 30.00 (C$)

Robert Kirk (aka Kirkwood) served with the 42nd and 77th Highland Regiments during the Seven Years War of the 1750s and Pontiac’s Rebellion. From Niagara Falls to Newfoundland, from the Carolinas to the Mississippi, he covered some 5000 miles by foot, canoe, whaleboat and transport ship.

By the time he returned home after ten years of “service truly critical,” our roguish hero had been captured and adopted by the Shawnee Indians. He became an accomplished marksman, hunter and tracker, proficient in the use of canoes, snowshoes and tumplines.

Robert Kirk's memoirs, reprinted here for the first time since 1775, bring his exciting story to life.

BOOK - British Army Pensioners Abroad, 1772-1899
By Norman K. Crowder
Published by Genealogical Publishing, Baltimore, 1995, reprinted in paperback 2012
The book includes all British Army pensioners who retired to any place outside of Great Britain including Canada, Australia, Caribbean, Ceylon etc, for which records are available (1772-1899). The largest portion chose to settle in Canada. British Army pensioners lived in the vicinity of every major center in the Canadian Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, and Ontario. In many cases their children and grandchildren emigrated to New England, New York, Michigan, and the American West. It is likely there are several million North Americans descended from these so-called "Chelsea pensioners." This book, which lists veterans who were discharged primarily during the period from 1800 to 1857, will help their descendants to trace their British origins.

BOOK - A Bard of Wolfe’s Army: James Thompson, Gentleman Volunteer, 1733-1830
Edited by Earl John Chapman & Ian Macpherson McCulloch

As a young grenadier in Fraser’s Highlanders, Sergeant James Thompson served in the capture of Louisbourg in 1758, the battle of the Plains of Abraham at Quebec in 1759 and the battle of Sillery the following year. Later he experienced the American blockade of Quebec by Generals Richard Montgomery and Benedict Arnold during the Revolutionary War. He remained in Quebec the rest of his long life.

Any distorion of historical facts has been carefully avoided". The old families mentioned were from the Townships of Stamford, Thorold, and Pelham.

BOOK - Commissioners' Books, A Reconstruction of Land Records Destroyed in the War of 1812    [Niagara District]
By Mayholme Foundation
Published by Mayholme Foundation, St. Catharines, 2012
When United Empire Loyalists and Settlers petitioned for land in the Niagara District following the American Revolution, the locations, acreage and surveyors documents of the approved petitions and grants were recorded by the Commissioner of the Niagara District and stored locally. On the 10th of December 1813, except for one building, the entire Town of Niagara was burned to the ground including the building which housed all of the land registry documents and records. This was not the only property to have been destroyed by fire by the Americans in the Niagara District but it was the only location of the land documentation. The result being that after the secession of hostilities it became necessary for a Commissioner to personally interview every Loyalist and Settler in the Niagara District as to the disposition of their lands. Witness accounts of the losses were also taken to prove or disprove the war loss claims.

BOOK - A Matter of Honour: The Life, Campaigns and Generalship of Isaac Brock
By Jonathon Riley. Foreword by Donald E. Graves
Published by Robin Brass Studio. Montreal, 2011
Isaac Brock was the British general responsible for defending the long frontier of Upper Canada with meagre forces in the opening days of the War of 1812. Revered by generations of schoolchildren as the "Saviour of Upper Canada" and commemorated by a towering monument on Queenston Heights, Brock is best known in Canada for his vigorous measures to defend against the invading American forces and for the daring exploit at Queenston Heights in which he died. Brock was a resourceful field commander who believed in offensive measures to keep his opponent off-balance and he is probably best known in the United States for managing to cow U.S. General William Hull into surrendering Detroit, to that general’s eternal shame.

BOOK - Strange Fatality, The Battle of Stoney Creek, 1813
By James E. Elliott .
The first detailed account of the little-known battle that changed the course of the War of 1812. Journalist and author James Elliott has compellingly reconstructed one of the least understood actions of the War of 1812. From the rise to brigadier of blacksmith John Chandler, to the Highland heroics of Alexander Fraser, Strange Fatality explores the dynamics of a night battle that stemmed the tide of invasion, cost two generals their freedom and unseated the highest-ranking soldier in the American army. In this ground-breaking study of a battle in which both sides were essentially blind, James Elliott sheds light, not only on a violent donnybrook in the dark, but also on the bizarre train of events that occasioned it. With 10 original maps, over 100 illustrations, portraits and photographs, many never seen before, as well as appendices on battlefield archaeology and the little-known “monument war.”

BOOK - Tecumseh's Bones, A historical mystery about the deception behind the death, burial, and legacy of the great Shawnee chief, Tecumseh.
By Guy St-Denis
Chief Tecumseh's death at the Battle of the Thames marked a turning point in the Anglo-American War of 1812. It was also the beginning of a mystery: the mutilation of Native corpses thwarted American attempts to identify Tecumseh's remains, giving rise to the belief that his body had been secretly recovered by his warriors. Tecumseh's Bones teases fact from fiction in the myths and legends surrounding the great chief's burial.

American Revolution / United Empire Loyalists:
    In response to protests in Boston over the British Parliament's attempts to maintain authority over its North American colonies, the British mobilized its army to put down the rebellion. Consequently the rebels formed militias of like-minded individuals to face the British military and to 'discourage' those colonial citizens who wished to remain loyal to the crown. Fighting broke out in 1775, offically ending in 1783 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Surviving Loyalists needed to find refuge outside of the United States. The movement of United Empire Loyalists to Canada was a critical event in the settlement of what later became Canada. Loyalists settled throughout the present-day Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario. Their descendants migrated throughout Canada and beyond.

BOOK - A Short Service History and Master Roll of James Rogers' 2nd Battalion, King's Rangers
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2015
After more than thirty years of studying the loyalist regiments that served in Quebec during the American Revolution, author Gavin k. Watt concluded that Major James Rogers’ 2nd battalion, King’s Rangers was sadly overlooked and required additional attention. There are two main sections to this book. First is a brief service history of the 2nd battalion from its creation in 1779 until disbandment in 1783. Second – by consulting original and secondary sources, Watt prepared a Master Roll of three hundred and fifty-eight men listing alternate spellings of surnames and given names, rank, enlistment date, company, service details, age, height, place of origin, trade, wife and family, and place of settlement. Of course, not all of these details could be found for every man, but the roll is pleasingly complete. In 1784, Rogers led a party of disbanded King's Rangers and their families to the Third Township of Cataraqui, later known as the Township of Fredericksburgh, in Lennox County, Ontario, where they were granted land.

BOOK - Loyalist Refugees, Non-Military Refugees in Quebec 1776-1784 - Second Edition
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2016
Soldiers did not come alone. In the past, wives, mothers, fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers and children of the fighting men have been given secondary treatment. In Loyalist Refugees, they are the subjects of a study describing the systematic persecution that forced so many to seek refuge in Quebec. How these unfortunate people were housed, fed, clothed and employed is examined, as is their desperate unhappiness and discontent. This book identifies and lists details for more than 2,000 non-military loyalist refugees who sheltered in lower Quebec during the American Revolution—pointing researchers to crucial primary and secondary sources in Canada, the USA, and the UK. Many if not most of these refugees migrated to places across British North America and beyond, after their period of sanctuary in Quebec.

BOOK - The Hessians And The Other German Auxiliaries Of Great Britain In The Revolutionary War.
By Edward J. Lowell (This historical reprint by Global Heritage Press)
The history of the German auxiliaries, who fought for Great Britain in the Revolutionary War, has not received from American writers the amount of attention which its importance would seem to deserve. Much of the original source material used by the author in 1884 was lost due to bombing during the Second World War. This circumstance heightens the the importance of this early work.

BOOK - Sketches Illustrating The Early Settlement and History of Glengarry in Canada
By J. A. MacDonell.
J. A. MacDonell recognized that much had been written on the subject of United Empire Loyalist settlement in Ontario, the War of 1812-14, and the Rebellion of 1837-8, but expressed concern that there was little mention made of the part that the Highlanders of Glengarry played in those conflicts. He corrects that oversight within the 29 chapters that comprise this formitable text. This book is an fine source of information for those interested in early settlement of the Highlanders in Glengarry and surrounding counties, and the role that they played in the American Revolution, United Empire Loyalist migration and settlement, War of 1812, and the Rebellion of 1837-38.
