In 1837, the colonial citizens of King Township, frustrated by government corruption and British oppression, marched on the City of York, in an attempt to overthrow the British garrison and create an independent country. Although the initial Rebellion failed, the protest movement sparked by the Rebellion eventually lead to the Union of Upper and Lower Canada, and Canadian Confederation in 1867. The rebels of King Township played a pivotal role in creating the Canada we know today. That is King Township's proud heritage.
We are the King Township Rebellion.
