Rivière-du-Loup, Québec, Canada (Fraserville) (Riviere du Loup en Bas) (Saint-Patrice) - 1861 - December 3 - Military - Trent Affair


British Secretary of War Sir George Lewis proposes to Lord Palmerston immediately to send “thirty thousand rifles, an artillery battery, and some officers to Canada”, then "engage a Cunard Steamer & send out one regiment & one battery of artillery next week." During December, they manage to send 11,000 troops to Halifax using 18 transport ships; between January 1, 1862 and March 13, 1862, five infantry battalions, three field artillery batteries, and six garrison artillery batteries will then move by sea from Halifax to Saint John, New Brunswick, then overland by sleigh to Riviere du Loup on the St. Lawrence.
