Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from The Life and Correspondence of Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, K. B The first edition of this Memoir was compiled in a very few weeks, amid other avocations, and while attending the sick bed of my father, who died shortly before its completion; and owing to this want of preparation, as well as to the difficulty of obtaining materials after the lapse or so many years, and at so great a distance from the scene of Sir Isaac Brock s principal labours, I candidly confess that it did not satisfy my own mind. But its publication having happily drawn forth much valuable matter, which in a few years would otherwise have been lost, it will be seen, from a very cursory perusal of this volume, that it is a great improvement on its predecessor, as several errors, topographical and others, arising from the cause just mentioned, have been corrected - many additional letters from Sir Isaac Brock are introduced, while a few others to him of little interest are omitted - and some new and graphic anecdotes and incidents are interwoven in the course of the narrative. Part of the new matter may, however, appear to the general reader as uninteresting and superfluous; but, conceiving that every detail, relating to the progress of a colony from its infant state, possesses a local and statistical value, I have thought such data worthy of being preserved.

Item Description: [William Briggs Toronto Litho Co.], [Toronto], 1896. No binding. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Paper size: 10 x 7 inches Image size: oval shape; 5-1/2 x 4 inches Under the oval image is printed (copyright 1896 by L.M. Taylor) Printed Brock signature. In small type at the bottom is printed By Permission from a minature hereto unpublished. Print had two small holes at the top as this page was one of the pages from a calendar bound by string through the holes. Overall in very good condition. "The [Brock] photograph was copyrighted in 1896 by L.M. Taylor and published by William Briggs, Toronto. Mary Agnes FitzGibbon and Sara Mickle produced the Cabot Calendar which included photographs from portraits of major figures in Canadian history with the avowed aim of fostering patriotism." quoted from Ludwig Koschie's Contemporary Portraits of Brock 1985 article. Isaac Brock began his military career in the early 1790's when he served in Jamaica and Barbados, before moving on to several posts in Europe. In 1802 he went to Canada as a lieutenant-colonel, and he quickly distinguished himself by single-handedly suppressing a dangerous conspiracy among deserters from a detachment at Fort George, the ringleaders of which were executed at Quebec in 1804. In 1810 he was named lieutenant governor of Upper Canada. "Here his energetic example, the confidence reposed in him by the inhabitants, and the ascendancy he possessed over the Indian tribes , at that time under the leadership of the famous Shawnee warrior Tecumseh, proved of the highest value." -- DNB. In 1811 Brock was raised to the rank of major-general, and the following year, upon the outbreak of war with the United States, he was instrumental in the capture of Detroit from General Hull. Brock was mortally wounded in the course of winning the Battle of Queenstown, and he died on October 13, 1812. Bookseller Inventory # 6743

Item Description: Fort George, UC, 1810. No binding. 1st Edition. NO OTHER ORIGINAL BRITISH (CANADA) EARLY 1800's COURT MARTIAL DOCUMENT FOUND [20pp. with blank on recto of docket p.20] 20cm x 32cm (7-3/4 x 12-5/8 inches) A unique, rare and important piece of Canadian military history. This is the official 20 page 1810 report on the Court Martial of Private Alexander Waddle, at Fort George in Upper Canada, presided over and signed by Brigadier General Isaac Brock, President, and military commander of Upper Canada and soon to become the 'hero of Upper Canada' Counter-signed by the Governor of Canada, Sir James Henry Craig. Alexander Waddle of the 100th Regiment was convicted by Brock's 2 day court martial for desertion. The 20 pages (paper Britannia watermarked) was bound with a small piece of vellum in the top left corner with a green cord, now broken and loose. It was originally folded down the middle of the 12-5/8 inch length, now flat. A summary title docketing information on the final leaf, page 20, in very faint old red ink reads: 'Laid before the Prince Regent 23 March 1811' confirms the officially that it arrived in London at Horse Guards and formally presented. Condition: The paper is browned with some finger-marking and the text is written in two hands (2pp of Waddle's defence statement signed). More soiling on the last couple of pages at the bottom. Page 18 has a very small pin hole likely from folding not affecting any hand-writing. Page 19 is blank and page 20 is in poor condition with doing, tears and a 1/4 hole in the center - no handwriting affected. In good condition overall. Even a casual student of Brock and the beginnings of the War of 1812 will wholeheartedly agree British desertions to USA were a serious and undermining concern that Brock faced in 1805 shortly after his arrival til his death in 1812. So little is known and written about this issue and in fact there appears to be no other court martial documents to be found from 1805 to 1820 relating to the British before and after the War of 1812 until now. The following comment promoting a CBC documentary I think summarizes the situation well, especially the last statement? When the War of 1812 was declared? Canada had 500,000 people (some of whom had recently been Americans) to America's seven million. Brock had only 1,600 troops to defend a 1,200 mile border. And he had the same worries Guy Carleton had had in 1774: Would the citizens fight the enemy or embrace them? "My situation is most critical," Brock wrote to the adjutant-general in Montreal, "not from anything the enemy can do but from the disposition of the people - the population, believe me, is essentially bad - a full belief possesses them all that this province must inevitably succumb.Most of the people have lost all confidence. I, however, speak loud and look big." It was difficult to look big given the state of affairs. To compound his problems there was rampant desertion in the Canadian militia, many of them going over to the Americans. Quoted from the People's History produced by CBC The account of the two day trial over the 28th and 29th of August 1810 begins with the formal warrant for the court martial 'from Sir James Henry Craig K.B. General and Commander of His Majesty's Forces in North America' and a reading of the charges. 'Brigadier General Isaac Brock' as President, presided over the hearings. There were thirteen other officers who were members of the Court Martial some of which which included; Lieutenant Colonel John Vincent, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Ellice and J B Clegg performing the legal role of Judge Advocate. Major George Taylor who recounts the claims of a conspiracy masterminded by Waddle to escape into the 'States' using a canoe. There follows a vivid account of the pursuit of the escaping man to cross to the nearby island of Bois blanc. In his cross examination Waddle denies the charge against him. The account of Waddle's defence tells a different story of course. The verdict of the court found Waddle guilty with the sentence 'to be. Bookseller Inventory # 6664
