A Trying Time: The North-West Mounted Police In The 1885 Rebellion written by Jim Wallace.

Out of stock

Categories: ,

The North-West Rebellion in 1885 was, in every sense, “a trying time” for the North-West Mounted Police.  The role of the force in the insurrection has been described by historians as “minor” and “insignificant” but this does not do justice to the major part played by a relatively small number of members of the Mounted Police, who were involved in the battles at Duck Lake, Cut Knife Hill, Frenchman’s Butte, and Loon Lake.  This book describes the Mounted Police activities just before, during and after the rebellion, including how General Middleton, commander of the Canadian Militia during the Rebellion attempted to have the force abolished and the role assumed by the Militia.
