Papers Presented at the 1837 Rebellion Remembered Conference of The Ontario Historical Society at Black Creek Pioneer Village, 28 September to 3 October, 1987

Unquestionably, the 1837-1838 rebellion in Upper Canada maintains a hold on the imagination of Ontario inhabitants and historians in a way that few other incidents in the history of the province have done.

When The Ontario Historical Society organized a week-long 150th anniversary celebration of the 1837 Upper Canadian Rebellion in 1987, it quickly found itself hosting one of the most popular historical conferences over presented in Ontario.

Enjoy 18 papers presented at this conference from contributors including Dorothy Duncan, Ronald J. Stagg, John C. Carter, Mary Beacock Fryer, J.M.S. Careless and many others.
