Notes: Mulvany was formerly of No. 1 Company, Queen's Own Rifles. His book is a personal account of the causes of the Rebellion and the actions taken by the Government to crush it. Of course, he had a pro-military bias and believed that the North West Mounted Police and volunteers had saved Canada from "Anarchy and Revolution."
