Published originally in 1841 by the author himself, a Major General of the Patriot Army, Upper Canada, for the information of those numerous generous hearted citizens of the United States, who so nobly and manfully avowed their sympathy for the oppressed Canadians, when contending agains the mighty power of Great Britain. The author’s desire for a Canada freed from the rule of Great Britain is a recurring theme throughout his writing. M’Leod covers the settlement of the United Empire Loyalists and the Scottish Highlanders (at Glengarry) in about twenty pages. The remainder of the book reviews various military and administrative troubles in the early 1800s. With a new everyname index.
