Title: The Trial and Execution of Louis Riel
Creator: J.P. or James Brady
Subject: Riel, Louis, 1885, Resistance, Métis, Brady, James
Description: In this article, James Brady analyses Louis Riel’s execution, arguing that Riel was unjustly executed and that the Métis had no recourse but to take-up arms in 1885. Brady uses many second-hand accounts from children of the descendents of the Métis resistance fighters in his narrative. This article is part of the James Brady Papers, which were donated to the Gabriel Dumont Institute in the 1990s by author and activist, Murray Dobbin. Dobbin used this collection to write his book about James Brady and Malcolm Norris entitled “The One-And-A-Half Men: The Story of Jim Brady & Malcolm Norris, Metis Patriots of the 20th Century”. Transcribed by David Morin and edited by Christine Charmbury and Darren R. Préfontaine. This document has been re-transcribed from the original and includes all spelling and grammatical errors.
