A dirty, trifling, piece of business : the Revolutionary War as waged from Canada in 1781 by Gavin K Watt( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1781, the sixth year of the American rebellion, British strategic focus had shifted from the northern states to concentrate in the south. Canada's governor, Frederick Haldimand, was responsible for the defence of the Crown's largest colony against the threat of Franco-American invasion, while assisting overall British strategy. He cleverly employed his sparse resources to vigorously raid the rebels' frontiers and create anxiety, disruption, and deprivation, as his Secret Service undermined their morale with invasion rumours and threatened their Union by negotiating with the independent republic of Vermont to return to the British fold. Haldimand flooded New York's Mohawk and Schoharie valleys with Indian and Loyalist raiders and, once the danger of invasion passed, he dispatched two coordinated expeditions south. One was launched onto Lake Champlain to alarm Albany and further the secret talks with Vermont. The second struck deep into enemy territory, fought a battle at Johnstown, and retreated precipitately. The rebels effectively countered both expeditions

The 19th Battalion Volunteer Militia (Infantry) Canada and the Fenian Raid in Niagara, June 1866 by William A Smy( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much has been written about the Fenian Riad into the Niagara Peninsula in June 1866, concentrating on the battles of Ridgeway and Fort Erie. This study is not a history of those battles nor of the Fenians involved in the invasion. It is, however, an attempt to detail the activities of the 19th Battalion on active service and the force under the command of Colonel George Peacocke on their move from St. Catharines to Fort Erie ... The 19th Battalion is a predecessor of the Lincoln and Welland Regiment which I commanded 1979-1983". Cf. Introd
