Chronicles of Canada Volume 27 - The Winning of Popular Government: A Chronicle of the Union of 1841

Book cover
By: (1862-1933)

In the 1830's, Canada was a ideologically divided country. Political upheaval and even riots occurred over Canada's future. Would it remain a subsidiary of England? Would it form its own republic, or even merge with the United States? This work tells of how some of Canada's founding fathers crossed the bridge between past and future.
