1837 Upper Canada Rebellion by C.W. Jefferys

Radical politician William Lyon Mackenzie leads a rebellion against the colonial government of Upper Canada on December 5th, 1837. Marching down Yonge Street, his disorganized group of rebel soldiers was quickly dispersed, and Mackenzie fled to the United States. This, and similar rebellions in Lower Canada (now Quebec) soon had the British Parliament looking at changes to the ways its Canadian colonies were governed.
