BOOK - Life and Times of Major General Sir Issac Brock, K. B.
By D. B. Read
Originally published by William Briggs, Toronto, 1894
This edition publishing by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2009 (CD 2010)

This book presents a compact history of the life of Sir Issac Brock, "The Hero of Upper Canada", written in an interesting and readable form. When Canada was invaded by the United States in 1812 it was Brock who was given the responsibility of defending Ontario from its southern aggressor. Along with providing a biography, the author discusses the genius of Brock's defence plan, and the eventual success in turning back the larger and better equipped American forces. Sir Issac Brock fell while leading his troops in the first campaign of the war, but his spirit inspired the men who were fighting for their hearths and homes to the end of the war. A must-read for those with an interest in the War of 1812. ISBN 978-1-926797-07-6 (Hardcover).    More information

BOOK - Lincoln at Bay, A Sketch of 1814
By Ernest Green [1923]
New Index by Brenda Young [2009]
Originally published by Tribune-Telegraph Press, Welland, 1923
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2009 (CD 2010)

Much has been written concerning the services and sacrifices of the people of Upper Canada (Ontario) during the War of 1812-1814. The author presents an intimate view by relating the experiences of individual participants in one of the most tragic acts of the drama of those years - The Battle of Chippawa. The author explains in the Preface that he relied on oral tradition that was handed down through the families since 1814, but that "the old traditions have been carefully justified by official and other contenporary records and in all particulars wherein such collaboration was possible. Any distorion of historical facts has been carefully avoided". The old families mentioned were from the Townships of Stamford, Thorold, and Pelham.

BOOK - Sketches Illustrating The Early Settlement and History of Glengarry in Canada
By J. A. MacDonell
Originally published Wm Foster, Brown & Co., Montreal, 1893
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2010

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.
