BOOK - The Good Regiment, The Carignan-Salieres Regiment in Canada, 1665-1668
By Jack Verney

Softcover... 39.95 (C$)

In 1665 the Carignan-Salieres Regiment was sent to Canada by King Louis XIV to quell the Iroquois, whose attacks were strangling the colony's fur based economy and threatening to destroy it's tiny settlements. In the course of its three year stay in Canada, the regiment established a period of relative peace that allowed the French to consolidate their foothold on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence, establish new settlements across the river, and rebuild the economy to it's former prosperity.

Promoted by Abbe Lionel Groulx as a body of chosen men sent to do God's work, the regiment came to be viewed as an elite corps of Catholic Crusaders.

In this book, Jack Verney sets the record straight, revealing that soldiers in the Carignan-Salieres Regiment were not saintly knights but caroused, womanized, and gambled just like those of any other infantry. Many of their members married some of the first French women to come to the colonies and some married women from the 'Fille du Roi' immigration.

Of special interest to military hstorians and genealogists is the Roll (list) of soldiers who made up the regiment.

Tthis valuable research resource is available once again due to this new limited printing.
