The Fenian Invasions of Canada of 1866 and 1870 and the Operations of the Montreal Militia Brigade in Connection Therewith: A Lecture Delivered Before the Montreal Military Institute, April 23rd, 1898
Abstract
The Fenians, Irish American veterans of the U.S. Civil War, hoped to capture British North America and force the British government to free Ireland of England's rule. The Canadian militia easily foiled their plan, but the Fenians did attack at Red River in Manitoba, Ridgeway in Ontario, Campobello in New Brunswick, and Eccles Hill (Missisquoi County) and Huntingdon in Quebec.
