The Second Battalion, Quebec Rifles, at Lower Fort Garry

by William R. Morrison


The Second Battalion, Quebec Rifles, was part of the expeditionary force sent to Red River in 1870 to suppress the Red River Rebellion. The force arrived after Riel and his followers had fled, and after less than a year at Lower Fort Garry, the battalion was disbanded, some returning to their homes in the East and others settling in the Red River area.
