At a time when monuments of ast Captive political heroes are being torn down or the debate about doing so turns violent it is worth looking a little deeper into theasts of these individuals While some were seen as heroes in their time these heroics are now seen through a new lens erhaps focusing less on their accomplishments for a eople and on their foibles or complete disregard for another group John A Macdonald is one such man a olitician whose name seems to have soured two centuries after his birth While he was Canada s first rime minister and the hometown hero of Kingston Ontario many around the country have begun thinking about his Treatment Of The Indigenous Population of the indigenous opulation his weaving TOGETHER FOUR COLONIES TO CREATE THE four colonies to create the stages of what is now the country I call home This left me to wonder about the man and his inner workings ushing Sons of Brahma past the stories that came from scholastic history books I thought that there would be no betterlace to look than eminent Canadian historian Donald Crieghton whose two volume biography of the man has been bandied about as one of the greatest ieces of Canadian olitical biography Passing through the introduction I did discover that these two books written in the early to mid 1950s apparently left out much of the controversial issues that Macdonald is being tarred with at resent because Creighton did not feel they were issues or worth bemoaning Still looking into the life of the man who until recently bore the image on the Canadian ten dollar bill and was a leading figure to bring Canada its formal independence I thought it important to look deep and explore below the superficial levels to understand how Macdonald became the olitician many knew him to be as well as tackling some of his controversial decisions throughout a long olitical career Macdonald did not steer away from controversy though one must onder how ushing modern lenses to define greatness from long ago seems to make sense As a note to readers of this review I will admit that for some make sense As a note to readers of this review I will admit that for some s sake as I am tackling this massive tome that encapsulates both biographical volumes I will not explore each in as much detail as I might had I been able to acuire them as two independent books However I will try to offer a summary and should the reader wish to explore them they can look to each volume independently for thorough details of Macdonald s life The Young PoliticianCreighton opens the volume with a discussion of the Macdonald family in history including early members of this Scottish clan who came to the British colony to set up after England defeated the French and claimed the land for themselves A young John Alexander Macdonald having been born on January 11 1815 made the trip with his family to Canada where they settled in Kingston and began a fruitful life Macdonald was a highly curious child who attended school and excelled as best he could with the curriculum resented to him but was not always challenged His interest in things relating to history and legal led him to depart school at fifteen and begin articling in a law firm There Macdonald took up a great deal of study on financial laws as the colonies were still trying to establish themselves with banks and the like Working in Kingston Macdonald was able to see Rebel Girls politics brewing with a legislature in Upper Canada now Ontario diligentlyushing for laws to work within the British system as Lower Canada uebec did the same There were many who argued the need to exert A Treason of Thorns partial British control of the region enough to ensure the North American colonies had a degree of independent thought androvisional ower which led to fiery rebellions in both Canadas There soon developed a ush to create a Canada wide legislature where such decisions could be met with greater ease It was at this time that Macdonald discovered his Martha, du nervst!: Von einem anderen Umgang mit Demenz passion for all thingsolitical only further exacerbated when Kingston was chosen as the first Seat of Government Macdonald entered the fray seeking to ush his Conservative values in a arliament that was not only divided by Zeugen aus der Todeszone political ideology but those of a cultural nature read English and French Still overseen by the British Macdonald worked through thearliamentary rocess and fought battles on local issues at times able to topple the sitting government from the opposition benches As Macdonald became adept at his craft he married and had a child though the tragedy of sickness in the mid 19th century aralysed him when the news of the little one s death came to him Torn between being a great husband and stellar The Transformation of Intergovernmental Satellite Organisations: Policy and Legal Perspectives politician Macdonald tried to balance bothart.

Confederation and sought a remedy to remove themselves from the mix While not overly worried Macdonald must facerovincial oliticians who want to dissolve the union as it stands while also sending rotest oliticians to Ottawa in the form of Nova Scotia anti confederationists This sentiment is sure to ass and Macdonald does his best to wait out the skirmishes Bracing for a new and forward Canada the country looks to stand on its own feet which includes creating treaties and setting longer term Reduced Laughter: Seriocomic Features and Their Functions in the Book of Kings policies America becomes an early ally and treaties are drawn up But Macdonald is also looking further East and West wanting the Dominion to dominate He welcomes Prince Edward Island into the mix and has his eye on British Columbia as well as the area formerly known as Rupertsland Manitoba becomes a keylayer in the mix of Canada expanding westward though there are still some wrinkles that must be flattened in

To a close with a final campaign for John A before a debilitating illness overtakes him in the late spring of 1891 Leaving an indelible mark on the country Macdonald would leave a legacy not soon forgotten A brilliant iece of work that encapsulates one of Canada s best known historical figures Highly recommended for the Option Writing Strategies for Extraordinary Returns patient and curious reader who seeks to explore themselves as well as Canada throughout the 19th centuryThis was surely a fascinating exploration not only of John A Macdonald but also the coming together of the colonies before the formal union under Canadian Confederation Donald Creighton does a fabulous job in his two volumes of depicting the man the leader and the new country as it came together to become the

pathways and helped to create lasting and well founded constitutional documents that are still applicable today Creighton shows theassion that Macdonald brought to his speeches his leadership and his

earlier in the review Creighton s critics bemoan his lack of attention on the indigenous Indian issues throughout the development Of Canada S History Creighton Canada s history Creighton argues a lack of importance of this which is surely where modern historians and rotestors alike find great fault with the man He did oversee early implementation of the Indian Act and the creation of residential schools as a means of assimilation but none of that came out in this book Shameful I will agree but I turn to my fellow readers of the book and this review to ask the following do we judge our heroes based on their actions at the time or through the lens of today Can all the The Real Estate Entrepreneur: Everything You Need to Know to Grow Your Own Brokerage praise and wonders that fell onto the shoulders of John A Macdonald leading to schools streets statues scholarships etc be nullified because a twenty first century revisiting of sentiments sour theast Must all heroes and olitical leaders stand the test of time Should flawlessness be key to being deemed heroic So many uestions filled my mind as I read Creighton s massive tome as I try to look through lenses of nineteenth mid twentieth and early twenty first centuries in order to judge John A Macdonald Is there a single answer that supersedes all othersBefore I drown myself in introspection and bore the review reader let me look at a few of the writing aspects of Donald Creighton s work These two massive tomes than 1000 ages of narrative before notes and bibliography offer a flood of information for the curious reader Creighton s dedication to the effort allows readers to feel as though they were watching Macdonald mature into a New Cutting Edge Elementary Students' Book preeminentolitician and world leader at a time when he had few on which to base his decisions As others have noted Creighton injects not only the history into his writing but also a strong sense of description which adds depth and flavour to the narrative From the opening Meditation Express: Stress Relief in 60 Seconds Flat pages of Volume One the reader canicture the boat flowing down the St Lawrence as the Macdonald clan arrived in their new land Creighton does this throughout helping to add a visual layer to an already olitically rich story Blood sweat and tears surely went into these volumes which earned much raise at the time of their Challenged by Love E-Boxed Set publication and I would venture to say remain stellarieces some sixty years later Canadian history may not be centuries long or as full of wild and crazy vignettes but Creighton effectively argues that there is much to be said about the creation of the Dominion of Canada and its first Communicating With Animals : The Spiritual Connection Between People and Animals political hero John A Macdonald is like a fine scotch surely not to everyone s liking but to be admired for some of its nuances Kudos Mr Creighton for thisowerful biography I can see how modern folk
