Title: The 9th Quebec Voltigeurs
Notes: Ronaghan describes the experiences and conditions of the men of the 9th Quebec Voltigeurs who came west in 1885 to help suppress the Northwest Rebellion. The Voltigeurs did not see action, but were dispatched to southern Alberta where they guarded the settlements and met with the Bloods and Blackfoot. The article is largely based on Beauregard's Le 9me Bataillon au Nord-Ouest (Shortt FC3215 .B44A3 1886).
