A group of Red River settlers who called themselves the Canadian Party attempted to overthrow the provisional government.
HAVE HIM EXECUTED!
The Metis, lead by Louis Riellaunched an attack on Fort Garry.
The Metis captured 50 members of the Canadian Party, one of them being Thomas Scott.
Thomas Scott was a difficult prisoner and often insulted the Metis guards. He was brought to court and held in contempt and was executed under the actions on Louis Riel.
Sir John A MacDonald created the Manitoba Act to please the Metis and the French Canadians.
The Red River expedition was a military force lead by Garnet Wolseley and commanded his forces to attack and reclaim Fort Garry. When they arrived, it was deserted. Riel fled to the US because he heard that Wolseley’s troops had planned to kill him for what he did to Thomas Scott.
