Abstract

Headlines in the July 10, 1838 edition of the Sandwich Western Herald proclaimed the following; "Piratical Doings on the River St. Clair." In his paper, the editor Henry Grant vividly portrayed an attack made upon Sombra, Upper Canada on June 28, by what he called "Pirates-Rebels." This was one of at least 14 unsanctioned and armed incursions into Canada from the United States. These violent intrusions were made between December 1837 and December 1838, by members of the Patriot Army. Four of these incursions constituted the often overlooked and forgotten St. Clair Raids.
