    Excerpt from The Sword of Old St. Joe: Historical Sketches

    Royal Engineers, arrived by way of the Ottawa river, with instructions to survey and examine the country from the straits of Mackinaw to Lake Superior, and report to Lord Dorchester, military governor of Canada, as to what seemed the natural boundary line and also to advise as to the most eligible site for a frontier fort.

    Captain Brice and his party evidently went over the disputed region thoroughly and must have spent some time exploring St. Joe, for in his report he states as follows - St. Joseph's Island is a very fine island about 27 miles lond, one of a numerous group which lies in the straits separating Lake Huron from Lake Superior. It is naturally fertile and well adapted for cultivation but not so well fitted for military purposes. However, I have claimed it for the British crown and have built a stockade.

    The stockade mentioned became Fort St. Joseph, and served for a num~ ber of years as a sort of coast guard for the North West Company. It was garrisoned by a small detachment of the Royal Canadian veteran regiment, the first all-canadian regiment ever raised in Canada.
