HALIFAX BOY KILLED IN ACTION'
"The name of another Halifax county boy has been added to the list of Canada's illustrious dead. It is that of Lieutenant
A.H. ("Bert") Rutledge, son of Mrs. A.Rutledge, 7 Preston Street, who was killed in action of October 26th, 1917."
From the Halifax Chronicle, Nov. 3 1917
"The North West Rebellion of 1885 was the culmination of discontent on the part of Metis,
Indians and white settlers, which had simmered since the Red River Rebellion of 1869/70. In
Ottawa, the government reacted swiftly, mobilizing troops nearly all militia units to assist in
putting down the insurrection. - From NS Archives
