Abstract

Historians of LowerCanada, like the historians ofthe United States, usually assume that the societies they are studying were exceptional. Numerous studies of Upper Canada, Lower Canada and the northeastern United States suggest that the population of those regions adopted similar strategies when confronted to similar problems. Historical research would therefore benefit from an approach which would use the northeastern part of the American continent, as opposed to the political units which compose it, as their frame of reference.
