Conflicts, Changes, and Confederation, 1770-1867by Sheila Nelson
During the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the Canadian colonies faced great changes and upheaval. The United States tried to invade and conquer Canada during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. Loyalists fleeing the United States after the American Revolution flooded into Canada, bringing an influx of conservative British settlers who would influence the growth of Canada throughout history.
In this book you will read how Canada changed from a few sparsely populated colonies to a country in its own right. You will learn how explorers discovered the Pacific Coast of North America, and how a gold rush would lead to a population explosion on the West Coast. You will read about the struggles of the Canadian people for self-rule, and how they finally were able to draw the British North American colonies together in a confederation to form the new country of Canada.
