The rebellions are people that turn against the government violently. In 1837, rebellions tried to remove the Elites from power. Every time the rebellions asked for change, the British government would give more power to the Elites. Rebellions started when the government started to arrest people they thought could start a group of rebellions. The rebellions in lower Canada tried to attack twice, but both attacks failed. During the attacks in lower Canada, the rebellions tried to attack, but were defeated the the militia, a group of citizens that are not professionally trained but are used in times of needs.
