"When fighting broke out in November 1837, French Canada appeared to have launched a full-scale revolution against its British masters. Patriote uprisings in several Richelieu Valley towns and another at St. Eustache northwest of Montreal were followed by an attempted liberation in 1838 by rebels who had fled to the United States. What had led to this explosion of discontent?
1759 had seen the defeat of the French by the English, but nearly 30 years later, 90% of Canada's 100,000 people remained French-speaking and Catholic. Loyal to England through the American Revolution and soldiers for England during the War of 1812, by 1837 these Canadiens were driven to take up arms against their governors.
There had been years of crop failure and cholera. The waves of immigration in previous decades had been intended to assimilate them in a mass of English-speaking newcomers. Government policies barred French Canadians from business and any meaningful role in government, leading many to believe they had no choice but to rebel. The legislature was paralysed and not even the eloquence of Louis-Joseph Papineau could end the injustices.
Joseph Schull's Rebellion is a passionate retelling of this time of armed uprising in Lower Canada -the conditions that led to it, the battles and reprisals, and the aftermath. First published in 1971, Rebllion not only lays bare the roots of French Canada's anger, but this remarkable and often tragic story concludes with the birth of the extraordinary French-English partnership that built this country."
