Title: Pigott Correspondence, Post 1885 (01)
Creator: Major C.A. Boulton
Subject: 1885, Resistance, Military, Veterans
Description: This is a letter by Major C.A. Boulton, of Boulton’s Scouts, to his comrade in arms, Lieutenant Colonel A.C.D. Pigott. The letter is dated October 6, 1885. It only reveals that the two men had fallen out of touch with one another and were in the process of renewing their friendship. This item, part of A.C.D. Pigott’s post 1885 personal correspondence, is part of the A.C.D. Pigott Collection, which was acquired by the Gabriel Dumont Institute in October 1991 by the Ted Pappas family of Vancouver, British Columbia. The collection includes: Louis Riel’s English-French dictionary, Lieutenant Colonel Pigott’s 1885 Resistance battlefield manuscript, and a number of artifacts taken off the battlefield including: an inscribed watch, a pipe, a bullet maker and a buffalo powder horn (both from the Métis trenches), a carved wooden container taken from Big Bear’s camp, a First Nations decorative bracelet and horsehair braiding, which may have been traded for food by somebody captured by the Boulton’s Scouts.
