Early Reminiscences

LYSONS, General Sir Daniel

Regular price $150.00 Sale

Lysons (1816 - 1898) was a British Army general who fought at the Battle of Alma in September 1854 and took command of the 2nd Brigade of the Light Division in October 1855. This explains his reference to the Crimean War in his Preface. His early days, however, were spent in traveling, often in North America. His memoirs discuss the French Revolution of 1830, "a real live ghost," Montmorency Falls, Niagara, the accession of Queen Victoria, the Rebellions of 1837, moose hunting, and a brief mention of our very own London, Ontario.
