The Rebellion of 1837 in one of the central events of Ontario's history, as those with even the slightest familiarity with our past will know. Among it's characters, William Lyon Mackenzie is undoubtedly the most famous, and he occupies a central role in these documents.
The failure of his rebellion decisively repudiated the armed uprising as a means to effect change in Upper Canada; soon afterwards, reactionary ultra-tory extremism was equally undermined and discredited.
Thus, the rebellion was at once the most marked break in the evolutionary pattern that has so largely characterized the province's political development over it's two-hundred-year history and a confirmation of that more moderate, gradualist tradition.
