  1. Thanks for this. Your readers visiting or living in Quebec may be interested in these events listed in the Montreal Gazette:

    As a European, I am largely ignorant of this conflict – it gets lost in the more straightforwardly Napoleonic conflict – but I do hope to find out more about it and my new country through my own history project, A History of Canada by Montreal Metro.
