Patriotes' End: 1. 108 Face Court Martial

Following the rout of Robert Nelson's rebels during battles in the southern townships of Lower Canada November 3 to 10, 1838, the British began a long court martial of the captured rebels for treason. Between November 28, 1838, and May 6, 1839, 108 French Canadian Patriote's faced their life and death examination before a clutch of British officers in Montreal.
