Reminiscences of the North-West Rebellions, with a Record of the Raising of Her Majesty's 100th Regiment in Canada, and a Chapter on Canadian Social & Political Life
BOULTON, Major Charles A.
Boulton was the commander of a cavalry unit known as Boulton's Scouts. The Scouts played a major role in the battle at Fish Creek and led the main Canadian force on its march to Batoche. Apparently Boulton hoped to capitalize on his military accomplishments by quickly publishing this account of his activities; he then lobbied the federal government for patronage. Boulton’s repeated requests for a suitable appointment proved unsuccessful, a bitter disappointment for a man who felt that his military service deserved recognition. One of the appendices in this book gives a complete list of the officers and men in the North West Field Force which suppressed the rebellion. Peel (3) 1347.
