It provides a narrative of the incidents of the Rebellion such as the Duck Lake fight, the Indian rising, the Frog Lake Massacre, and the military campaigns against Riel and the Métis. The publication is well illustrated with drawings of Louis Riel, Major L. N. F. Crozier, Red Pheasant, Fort Pitt, Big Bear, Capt. Dickens, Major-General F. D. Middleton, the map of the field of battle of Fish Creek, Lieut.-Col J. A. Ouimet, the scene of the fight at Cut Knife Hill, Colonel W. D. Otter, and Crowfoot and his chiefs. Finally, there is an appendix which contains a list of the troops and Mounted Police in the field.
