Notes: Daoust was a sergeant in the 65th Battalion from Montreal. He provides a detailed account of the day to day affirs of the Batallion, but knew very little of the background or reasons for the Resistance. In this he likely provides an accurate picture of the common soldiers, ignorant of causes and conditions in the North West and prey to sensational rumours.
