Largest hanging in Canadian history

Interesting article here on the events leading up to the hanging of eight traitors hung on July 20th, 1814. The article also demonstrates how precarious the British situation was in Upper Canada in 1813 and 14. The sentence was harsh as could be:

Quote:
The afternoon of the last trial, the 15 convicted men assembled one by one, to hear the chief justice pronounce the most fearsome mandatory sentence for High Treason: "Each of you be taken to the place from whence you came thence you are to be drawn on Hurdles to the place of Execution whence you are to be hanged by the neck but not until you are dead for you must be cut down while alive and your entrails taken out and burnt before your faces. Your heads then to cut off and your bodies divided into four quarters to be at the King's disposal. And God have mercy on your Souls."
The 15 became 8 as pleas for clemency were accepted. when they came to be hanged they were allowed to die before being taken down and a cut was made to them symbolizing disinbowelment which was not done nor were they quartered. They were beheaded however, and their heads put on display.

the article is here, it's a good read:

... hangee's weren't Canadian, they were all American born, as was some 75% of the population of Upper Canada, and one of the Judges who sentenced them. They were made an example of to stiffen up their fellow Americans. The War of 1812 was ... interesting that way.

I think the population of Fort York (Toronto) approximately 500 was smaller than that which visited Fort William (Thunder Bay) during Rendezvous approximately 2-3 thousand.
The entire population of Canada was approximately 300 thousand and that of the United States approximately 1 million.
It would be interesting to see the population distribution of NA on a map during the period.

Thanks Paul I could see Lower Canada especially Quebec City, Montreal & Trois Rivieres, Quebec being the main focus of development due to the fur trade & their location on the St. Lawrence which gave access to the continent by the Narrow Passage Way "Quebec".

The Lower Canadian economy was boosted by the effective closure of the Baltic during the Napoleonic war when the important timber trade shifted to Canada. Part of my own family had been timber merchants and ship owners trading with the Baltic for at least a century and shifted their business entirely to the North Atlantic trade with Canada. The British ship building industry both merchant and naval became dependent upon Canada for masts and spars - much of the timber coming down the St Lawrence.
