Course Toward Eventual Nationhood

Pearson At Chippawa

From this site:

"Battles in Upper Canada (modern Ontario)...arguably set Canada on its course toward eventual nationhood." In the region bordered by Lake Ontario to the north, Lake Erie to the south, and the Niagara River to the east, and along the St. Lawrence, professional soldiers like Thomas Pearson repelled American forces, refusing to yield British Canada.

Thomas Pearson of the Royal Welch Fusiliers is mentioned in this book review.
