Outlaws of the Lakes

Bootlegging & Smuggling From Colonial Times to Prohibition

Book - 2004
Rate this:
Since early colonial times, the Great Lakes, the Upper St. LAwrence and Lake Champlain have been smugglers' highways. They have borne silent witness to trafficking of almost every commodity governments could tax or ban. Smugglers kept commerce alive in Canada in the early nineteenth century, contributed to the British-Canadian victory in the War of 1812, and carried escaped slaves to freedom in Canada in the decades before the American Civil War. They also corrupted government officals, terrorized honest citizens and committed acts of ruthless violence.
