Good evening, I would like to know if the patriots won the rebellions?
Thank you :)

The Patriots rebellion of 1837-38 consisted of three main battles; Saint-Denis, Saint-Eustache and Saint-Charles. Although the Patriots emerged victorious in the Battle of Saint-Denis, they were defeated by the colonial authorities in the other two battles.
During these last two battles, the British authorities ransacked villages and burned down houses, leaving the patriots as well as their wives and children on the streets in the middle of winter. Which explains why hundreds of Patriots fled to the United States.
However, it was during the battle at Odelltown that the Patriots officially lost. The rebellion is then considered a failure. Several trials will subsequently take place to try 108 of the Patriots.
Hope that answers your question! :)
