Civil Administration – Upper Canada

This excerpt from the biography of Sir Gordon DRUMMOND hints at the turmoil faced by Upper Canada’s administrators:

“Drummond was still in Ireland when the War of 1812 broke out. In August 1813 he left for North America after being appointed president of the government and commander of the troops in Upper Canada, the principal seat of the war…. When Drummond reached his headquarters at Kingston on 3 December, he found the province in considerable disarray.”
