Books on the Raider and Rebel Theme

Updated December 2014
June 2012 marked the bicentenary of the start of the War of 1812. Governments and media on both sides of the border played up that pivotal struggle.

The need to defend Canada's border with the United States did not end in 1815 with the close of the War of 1812, as some believe. Other 19th-century wars and skirmishes along that great border are the subject of books from Raiders and Rebels Press.

For example, 2012 also marks the 175th anniversary of the start of the Patriot War. Between December 1837 and December 1838, Canadian rebels and American sympathizers attacked Upper and Lower Canada 13 times from American soil.

Many of the books now available from this publishing site deal with the Patriot War, either as standard history or as historical fiction.

In the months and years to come, Raiders and Rebels Press will publish additional titles, both history and historical fiction.
