The Rise of Canada, from Barbarism to Wealth and Civilisation. Volume 1


Charles Roger (Author)

Series: Canada: Past, Present and Future
BISAC: HIS006000

In the first chapter of The Rise of Canada, from Barbarism to Wealth and Civilisation, the history of the province while under French rule is rapidly traced, and the history of the New England Colonies dipped into, with the view of showing the progressional resemblance between that country which is now the United States and our own; in the second chapter the reader obtains only a glance, as it were, at the American war of independence, when he is carried again into Canada and made acquainted with the many difficulties in spite of which Upper and Lower Canada continued to advance in wealth and civilisation; in the third chapter a history of the war between England and the United States is given with considerable minuteness; and the fourth chapter brings the reader up to the termination of that extraordinary period of mis-government, subsequent to the American war, which continued until the Rebellion, and has not even yet been altogether got rid of.
