Rate this:

A comprehensive history of rebellions and U.S. invasions in Upper Canada, in 1837 and 1838, covering the skirmishes in eastern Ontario, Toronto, and southwestern Ontario. Lavishly illustrated with rare photos and maps, Volunteers is a popular narrative history that examines the lives and motives of the leaders of Upper Canada's rebellions; their U.S. allies; the British and Canadian administrators who played significant roles in the uprisings; and the Canadians who remained loyal to the Crown.

The book is also a careful and gripping study of the emotions and motives that burned inside of the men who led the rebellions; from Windsor in the west to Prescott in the east. A co-publishing venture with the Canadian War Museum, Volunteers is being released in conjuction with the sesquicentennial of the famour Mackenzie rebellion in Toronto.
