  1. I am assuming you have received the medal by now. Have you considered obtaining this man's service record?
  2. Here you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archibald_Bissett_Smith Bonne journ
  3. Thanks for your efforts Ed. I hope that will give us an answer on why no medal was awarded. After all, they awarded one for the Fenian Raids and the NW Rebellion under Riel. Just curious.
  4. Hi Stephen There isn't that many books out but two that stand up: 1. Redcoats and Patriots by Senior, Elinor Kyte 2. (French) Histoire des Patriotes by G?rard Filteau. Here is a reference: http://www.edunetconnect.com/cat/rebellions/
  5. Hi Peter I will be publishing it online at Armchair General's website. I've already got a few listed on that website on Canadian military involvement in world conflicts.
  6. Micheal, do you still need Kiev and Sebastopol? If so, I can scan mine and email them to you.
  7. Thanks for the input Guys. To touch up on casualties: British/Loyalists: 30 killed Habitant/Patriotes forces: A little over 310 killed Three major battles (skirmishes by Civil war and European standards) were fought at St-Denis (Rebellion victory), St-Charles (British victory) and St-Eustache (British victory) in 1837. I live quite close to St-Eustache and went last week to take some photos for an article I am writing on another website. In 1838, further revolts occurred and insurgents came in from mainly the US (canadian residents, not US citizens). A major battle occurred at Odelltown on the Qu?bec - New York border in which the Canadian Militias were able to beat the Insurgents. Several other skirmishes occurred and once the rebellion was crushed, a few hundreds were exhiled to Australia and Tasmania and I believe a dozen were hanged at the Montreal Prison. That ended the Rebellion but it paved the way for political reforms and the eventual setup of Canada in 1867. As a sidenote, after the Rebellion of 1837, General Colborne, the British Commander feared another revolt and asked Britain for reinforcements. He was sent two regiments, but not just any regiments: The Grenadier Guards and the Coldstream Guards. It was irronic that during 1838, all the fighting against Rebel forces were done by local Militias, hence Canadian against Canadian. Our first Civil War. Ed, were you able to locate that article in the JOMSA?
  8. Rick, they were Canadians revolting against British rule. The Rebellion called "The Patriot Rebellion" took place in Upper and Lower Canada and was put down quite quickly by the British and Militias.
