1 FitzGibbon, Mary Agnes. A VETERAN OF 1812: THE LIFE OF JAMES FITZGIBBON.
Toronto Coles 1979 Facsimile Edition. Soft Cover Very Good 
336 pp + Appendices and Notes, 8 3/8" H. Part of the Coles Canadian Collection - facsimile of the William Briggs, Toronto, 1894 edition. B&w illustrations. "Lieutenant James FitzGibbon was one of the greatest and most venturesome leaders in the War of 1812. The commander of a troop dubbed the Bloody Boys, he practiced a form of guerilla warfare, at the time considered highly unconventional. It was the lieutenant who, in 1813, received news from Laura Secord of an impending surpise attack at Beaver Dams. And it was FitzGibbon who, despite being vastly outnumbered, obtained an American surrender two days later. After the war, FitzGibbon was twice promoted and helped supress the Rebellion of 1837. (This) biography, written by his granddaughter, includes selections of his own writing, as well as others of his time, including Isaac Brock." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor corner wear, tiny bump at bottom of rear hinge, minor rubbing.
