Re: Pinsonneaults in the 1837 Revolution

Hi: Here is a wonderful site if you read French. Many Pinsonneault men belonged to the secret society known as "Les Patriotes." It originated in the Napierville area and was very strong in 1837 among the French-Canadians. The site has been recently reconstructed and so far I have not been able to find my favorite section: the narrative of the Iroquois Indians concerning this period. I have not found your Pinsonneaults among the documented testimonies, but here is the site anyway.
