Name of creator
The April 1885 paylists for Major Boulton's Troop of Mounted Infantry, list A.C. D. Piggott in No. 1 (Captain Gardiner's) Troop. No. 2 (Captain Johnson's) Troop was certainly at some of the battles referred to in the manuscript, specifically Fish Creek, Batoche, and in the pursuit of Big Bear as far as Loon Lake. See C.A. Boulton's Reminiscences of the north-west rebellion . . ., 1886 for more information.
Unfortunately, the original manuscript cannot be located. Beal and Macleod's Prairie fire, 1984 have no record of it. The copy was purchased by the donor several years ago (in Victoria, BC); at the time he was under the impression that it was the only extant copy of the manuscript remaining. This has not been verified, nor has there been any attempt to verify the details of the manuscript itself, or to date the work.
