IN FLANDERS FIELDS

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.


John McCrae

This poem by Canadian Lieutenant-Colonel McCrae was first published on 8 December 1915 in England, appearing in “Punch” magazine.

BOOK - The Sharp End, Canadians Fighting in the Great War 1914-1918 - Volume One   
By Tim Cook
Published by Penguin Canada, Toronto, 2009
The first comprehensive history of Canadians in WWI in forty years, and already hailed as the definitive work on Canadians in the Great War, At the Sharp End covers the harrowing early battles of 1914—1916. Tens of thousands, and then hundreds of thousands, died before the generals and soldiers found a way to break the terrible stalemate of the front. Based on eyewitness accounts detailed in the letters of ordinary soldiers, Cook describes the horrible struggle, first to survive in battle, and then to drive the Germans back. At the Sharp End provides both an intimate look at the Canadian men in the trenches and an authoritative account of the slow evolution in tactics, weapons, and advancement. Featuring never-before-published photographs, letters, diaries, and maps, this recounting of the Great War through the soldiers' eyes is moving, engaging, and thoroughly engrossing. The second volume in this series is titled Shock Troops 1917-1918

BOOK - Shock Troops, Canadians Fighting the Great War 1917-1917 - Volume Two   
By Tim Cook
Published by Penguin Canada, Toronto, 2009
Highly acclaimed and comprehensive, Shock Troops follows the Canadian forces during the titanic battles of Vimy Ridge, Passchendaele, and the Hundred Days campaign. Through the eyes of foot soldiers who fought and died in the trenches on the Western Front, and based on newly uncovered archival sources, this book builds on volume I of Tim Cook's national bestseller, At the Sharp End. The Canadian fighting forces never lost a battle during the final two years of the war, and although they paid a terrible price in the killing fields of the Great War, they were indeed, as British Prime Minister David Lloyd George exclaimed, the shock troops of the Empire.

Fenian Raids 1866-1871:
    The Fenian raids were attacks by members of the Fenian Brotherhood based in the United States, on British army forts, customs posts and other targets in Canada in order to bring pressure on Britain to withdraw from Ireland, between 1866 and 1871. Most of the raids were successfully repelled by British forces and local militias. While the U.S. authorities arrested the men and confiscated their arms afterwards, there is speculation that many in US government had turned a blind eye to the preparations for the invasion..

Rebellions of 1837-1838:
    The Lower Canada (Quebec) and Upper Canada (Ontario) rebellions of the late 1830's were an effort by a dedicated few to turn the British provinces of North America into a republic or republics. After unsuccessful bids for control of power, a few of the rebels were hanged or transported, but most were eventually pardoned. As a direct result of the uprisings, Lord Durham, was assigned to report on the grievances among the colonists and find a way to appease them. His report eventually led to greater autonomy in the Canadian colonies, and the union of Upper and Lower Canada into the Province of Canada in 1840..
BOOK - Reports of the Commissioners on the Rebellion Losses in the years 1837-1838 - in Lower Canada (Quebec)
Published by Provincial Parliament, Montreal, 1852
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2013

This Report of the Commissioners on the Rebellion Losses... focuses on 107 claims of the final 348 claims that were still outstanding in 1852. These 107 denied or partially denied claims make especially interesting reading insofar as so many of the claimants participated directly in the Rebellion, or materially supported the rebel cause. After an explanitory preamble the report continues with a list of the claimants names and amounts of claim, where they lived, details about the amount of the claim. The bulk of the book contains written explanations supporting the Commissioners' decisions on each individual claim (identified by claim number and person's name), plus several pieces of releavant correspondence and related explanation.    More information

BOOK - 1837-38 Rebellion Losses of Upper Canada (Ontario)
Published by Provincial Parliament, Montreal, 1849
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2013

A comprehensive source for names of the claimants and their losses during the Rebellion of 1837-38 in Upper Canada including subsequent restitution amounts or rejection of claims in whole or in part. Some years ago we purchased a forty eight page document originally printed in 1849, that lists the individual claimants by their name, the amount of their claim in currency (sums claimed), the amount paid (sums allowed) or denied (rejected altogether) and the District in which the claimant resided. The Johnstown District claims include "Nature of Claim" and "remarks". Those entries shine much light on which side of the conflict that the claimants sympathized with along with details of ownership or personal information.   More information

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.

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 - The Civil War of 1812: American Citizens, British Subjects, Irish Rebels, & Indian Allies
By Alan Taylor
In this deeply researched and clearly written book, the Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Alan Taylor tells the riveting story of a war that redefined North America. During the early nineteenth century, Britons and Americans renewed their struggle over the legacy of the American Revolution. Soldiers, immigrants, settlers, and Indians fought in a northern borderland to determine the fate of a continent. Would revolutionary republicanism sweep the British from Canada? Or would the British empire contain, divide, and ruin the shaky American republic? A vivid narrative of an often brutal (and sometimes comic) war that reveals much about the tangled origins of the United States and Canada.

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.”

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 - Loyalist Refugees, Non-Military Refugees in Quebec 1776-1784
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2014
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. ISBN 978-1-926797-96-0 (Coil bound)    More information

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.

BOOK - Ontario People: 1796-1803
By Keith Fitzgerald, with Introduction and Index by Norman K. Crowder
Published by Genealogical Publishing Comany, Baltimore, 1993 (reprinted 1998)
After the American Revolution, several thousand families came to settle in the western part of Quebec, later called Upper Canada, then Canada West and today Ontario. These settlers were former members of American Loyalist regiments, discharged British and German servicemen, and some civilians and refugees. They were offered grants of 200 acres of land on condition that they take an oath of allegiance and remain loyal to the British regime. The military and Loyalist arrivals who had come earlier received larger grants, generally in relation to their services to the Crown, their rank or status, and family size. Some entries show, for example, relationships, deaths, military service, maiden names of married women, and remarriage of widows. ISBN 9780806313665 (hardcover)   More information

BOOK - Tories, Fighting for the King in America's First Civil War
By Thomas B. Allen
Published by Harper Collins, New York, 2010
A sweeping, dramatic history of the Americans who chose to side with the British in the Revolution. The American Revolution was not simply a battle between independence-minded colonists and the oppressive British. As Thomas B. Allen reminds us, it was also a savage and often deeply personal civil war, in which conflicting visions of America pitted neighbor against neighbor and Patriot against Tory (Loyalist) on the battlefield, the village green, and even in church. The Revolution also produced one of the greatest migrations in Western history. More than 80,000 Loyalists left America, most of them settling in Canada.

BOOK - A dirty, trifling, piece of business, Volume I: The Revolutionary War as Waged from Canada in 1781
By Gavin K. Watt
With research assistance of James F. Morrison and William A. Smy
By 1781, the sixth year of the American rebellion, British strategic focus had shifted from the northern states to concentrate in the south. Canada's governor, Frederick Haldimand, was responsible for the defence of the Crown's largest colony against the threat of Franco-American invasion, while assisting overall British strategy. He cleverly employed his sparse resources to vigorously raid the rebels' frontiers and create anxiety, disruption, and deprivation, as his Secret Service undermined their morale with invasion rumours and threatened their Union by negotiating with the independent republic of Vermont to return to the British fold.

The second installment in Gavin K. Watt's Revolutionary War trilogy, I am heartily ashamed picks up where A dirty trifling piece of business leaves off. It's a new year with new challenges. An incredibly fierce Canadian winter was endured before raiding was resumed against the enemy's frontiers. Haldimand chose to alter his strategy, giving command of large projects to First Nations leaders whose methods greatly challenged the rebels. A new British ministry announced a cessation of arms in July, soon followed by peace talks. When Haldimand discovered that the treaty's articles threatened the security of Canada and made no provisions for the natives or loyalists, he confessed, "My soul is completely bowed down with grief I am heartily ashamed."

BOOK - The Rebellion in the Mohawk Valley, The St. Leger Expedition of 1777
By Gavin K. Watt with research assistance by James F. Morrison.
Published by Dundurn, Toronto
In the summer of 1777, while the British and the Americans were engaged in the bitter American Revolution, a massive campaign was launched from Canada into New York State. Brigadier Barry St. Leger led a crucial expedition from Lake Ontario into the Mohawk Valley. The goal was to travel by waterways to join Lieutenant General John Burgoyne in the siege of Albany. But Leger encountered obstacles along the way. While laying siege to Fort Stanwix, Leger received word that Benedict Arnold was leading a massive relief column that was headed their way. Leger and his men retreated, and despite a later attempt to carry on, were never able to help Burgoyne. The Americans then destroyed the British-held Fort Ticonderoga, marking the end of the campaign. The results of the failed St. Leger expedition were historic. Not only was the loss of Fort Ticonderoga was a major blow to the British war effort, but the campaign also brought about the disillusionment of the Iroquois Confederacy, and saw the founding of the infamous Butler's Rangers and the first major campaign of Sir John Johnson's King's Royal Regiment.

Following the Revolution more than 20,000 Loyalists fled to Nova Scotia but the Loyalists were disappointed not only by their treatment at the hands of the British Government, but also by the apparent unwillingness of the government and people of Nova Scotia to recognize their sacrifice and encourage their advancement. This sense of opposition from the existing community made their experience different from that of Loyalists elsewhere and contributed to the intensity and longevity of Nova Scotia’s loyalist traditions.

BOOK - Land of the Loyalists, Their struggle to shape the Maritimes
By Janice Potter-MacKinnon
Published by McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal, 1995
Fleeing the American Revolution, Loyalists arrived in the Maritimes driven by a dream: out of the desolate wilderness of present-day Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, they would carve a distinctive cultural and social landscape. Closer to Britain than any of the American states, and only a short sea voyage from New York, the Maritimes seemed to offer the Loyalists a fresh canvas on which to imprint their ideals. In transplanting their British sensibility, ideas of material culture, and respect for order and institutions, the Loyalist leaders attempted to establish New Ireland, a melding of rebellious New England and loyal New Scotland. (Nove Scotia). But this dream for New Ireland was never realized. The Loyalist struggle to impose material and social refinements, and to cultivate a sense of civic responsibility, was frustrated by inhospitable land, long winters, and reluctant inhabitants. Still, the Loyalist legacy is evident today throughout the Maritimes - in the architecture of towns such as Fredericton, New Brunswick and Shelburne, Nova Scotia, and in the social and political institutions of the entire region. This book explores the Loyalists' settlement patters, land distribution, and architectural efforts, as well as the Black Loyalist experience, giving a thorough and engaging look at the forces that created the Loyalist imprint in the Maritimes.

BOOK - The Loyalists, Revolution, Exile, Settlement
By Christopher Moore
In 1783 and 1784, some fifty thousand Americans felt that they could not support the revolution against Britain. As the Loyalists streamed into the Canadian colonies to the north, they changed forever the face of settlement there. Their arrival would eventually lead to the formation of the provinces of New Brunswick and Ontario. The Loyalists tells the very human story of these people - of the societies that shaped them, the attitudes that motivated them, and the circumstances that determined their future and influenced the future of Canada. It went on to win the Secretary of State’s Prize for Excellence in Canadian Studies. This book won the Secretary of State's Prize for Excellence in Canadian Studies    More information

BOOK - An Annotated Roll of Butler's Rangers 1777- 1784 With Documentary Sources
Compiled and Arranged by Lieutenant Colonel William A. Smy, OMM, CD, UE
The Corps of Rangers commanded by Lieutenant Colonel John Butler was raised in 1777 and served until the general reduction of the British Army in North America in 1784. The Rangers were headquartered at Fort Niagara, first living in garrison, and then in barracks on the west side of the Niagara River. While the Corps fought as a major unit at Wyoming, Cherry Valley, Chemung, on Sir John Johnson's and Major John Ross's raids, most of the expeditions were mounted by company or company plus sized units. A key factor in the successes of the Rangers was the close co-operation of the various Indian nations with which it served. The Corps fought in what is now New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, Kentucky and Michigan. It has been described by military historians as the most active and successful Provincial Corps in the Northern Command during the Revolution.    More information

Edited by Ian M. McCulloch & Timothy J. Todish
Introduction: Stephen Brumwell; Artwork: Robert Griffing
Published by Robins Brass Studio, Montreal, 2004
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. A riveting read for those who are interested in the period.
