In 1870, Garnet Wolseley set off for Red River with 1100 soldiers to put down the rebellion started by Louis Riel. Two reporters accompanied the expedition, the Telegraph’s Robert Cunningham and the Globe’s Molyneux St. John. And also along for the journey was St. John’s wife, international burlesque star Kate Ranoe.
In this presentation, Ted Glenn tells the remarkable story of two reporters and one extraordinary woman as they journey to Red River with Colonel Garnet Wolseley and his Expeditionary Force.
