  Rebellions of 1837 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Rebellions of 1837 were a pair of Canadian armed uprisings that occurred in 1837 in response to frustrations in political reform and ethnic conflict.
This view usually interprets the rebellion in Lower Canada largely in ethnic and cultural terms, suggesting that it was primarily a conflict between French Canadian nationalists and an English ruling class, while the less-successful rebellion in Upper Canada was a conflict between republican and monarchical ideology.
Saul suggests the rebellions were both part of the same broad movement for democratic and republican reform, pointing to the extensive correspondence between the leaders of the rebellion, and the prominence of some English speakers in the rebellion in Lower Canada such as the brothers Wolfred Nelson and Robert Nelson.

While the Patriot Rebellions were precipitated by a whole series of events, the clincher in Lower Canada was without a doubt the British Government's response to the Ninety-two Resolutions — a list of grievances, complaints and demands — passed by the Lower Canada Assembly and submitted to London in 1834.
In the end, 12 patriots were hanged at Pied-du-courant in Montreal, 58 were deported to Australia, two others were banished from the colony for life and 27 were released on bail.
