The Aftermath of the Rebellions

Brian J. Young, McGill University

The Rebellions of 1837-1838 were the most dramatic political event in Canadian history. Issues such the control of Canada's future and the rights of French Canadians and working people in Upper Canadian shops and in the countryside sparked debates that ended in violence. The rebellions were forcibly put down, their leaders were hanged or exiled, and the country was placed under martial law.
