During the Patriot War, fought between 1837 and 1842, hundreds of men on both sides of the New York-Canada border took up arms to free Canada from supposed British tyranny. Infused with the Spirit of '76 and inspired by the recent Texas revolution, they fought bravely in battles, skirmishes and attacks, including the November 1838 Battle of the Windmill. Many sacrificed their lives, while others became slave laborers of the British in Tasmania. Among their leaders was Bill Johnston, a Thousand Islands smuggler, river pirate and War of 1812 privateer whose cunning was so feared by the British that they called out their military: whenever, his name made the newspapers. This book recalls the stories, triumphs and sacrifices of brave men on both sides of the border. Book jacket.
