In the 1800s, Upper Canada was the newest colony in British North America.
It took a day to travel 30- 40 km on horseback. Most people walked. The forest was dense and clearing the land was an important first task. It took a year to clear an area the size of a modern day city block.
Invasion attempts by the Americans strengthened Upper Canada’s ties with Britain because they needed protection.
In Upper Canada, family background meant a great deal especially to the upper class. Upper class people wanted to keep their privileges. But life in the colonies seemed to even out the social classes. Everyone needed help with each other and had to work as a team, regardless of how important they were in Britain.
