The Indian Stream "War" 1835

[ 1835 ]

Living near the uncertain, remote border between Canada and New Hampshire, the 360 inhabitants of Indian Stream established a provisional, free republic with a constitution, bicameral legislature, and 40-man army (1832-35). Some inhabitants wanted to be Canadians; others wished to join New Hampshire, which (along with the US government) rejected Indian Stream's independence. In 1835, pro-Canadians attacked and routed two sheriffs from New Hampshire, which finally, (November) sent in 50 militiamen, who easily won the "war" without any casualties. Indian Stream later (1836) united with New Hampshire.
