Batoche is the story of a young nation's loss of innocence. It is here that a battle was fought over four bloody days that changed Canadian history. The Prime Minister, John A. Macdonald and the Metis leader, Louis Riel went head to head, and the results of this confrontation still resonate. Twenty-five men eventually lost their lives on the battlefield and it would be another five long days before Riel turned himself in. He would be hanged for his part in the rebellion, a controversial penalty that is still debated to this day. Find out what happened when western expansion bumped into Metis resistance.
