Excerpt from the preface: "Having personally seen active service on the Niagara frontier during both of the Fenian Raids of 1866 and 1870, and retaining vivid recollections of the situation of affairs at the front during these two campaigns, I will endeavor in the succeeding chapters of this book to give the reader a faithful account of what occurred on these stirring occasions. I have not relied on memory alone to present these facts, but have corroborated my personal knowledge by reference to official records and report of officers which may be found in the archives of the Militia Dept. of Ottawa, and the Ontario Bureau of Archives at Toronto. I have endeavored to fully cover the subject, and put on record the splendid service which our gallant volunteers rendered to their country in 1866 and 1870." John A. MacDonald. (A Captain 43rd Battalion (Ottawa and Carleton Rifles.)
