General Reference Sources

The reader will find guidance in general reference sources on the Canadian forces and Canadian military history, as well as the general sources on the North-West troubles within Canadian history. Most of the militia units which took part in the Campaign have survived into modern times. Dornbusch and The regiments and corps of the Canadian Army guide the reader from the 1885 units almost to the present day: both are now somewhat dated. The militia list for 1885 gives a good picture of the organization and the officers of those militia units on the eve of the Campaign.
