Longstreth's chapter on the Rebellion of 1885 is a superficial narrative of the NWMP's military engagements with the Métis. Because of his bias in favour of the police, he describes the Métis as "child like rebels" and refers to Riel as "the most pitiful conspirator in Western history". However, he is critical of General Middleton and mentions a number of his follies.
