Short Summary of the Life of Major-General Sir Isaac Brock free pdf Excerpt from Short Summary of the Life of Major-General Sir Isaac Brock This Lecture is intended as an answer to that question which has been asked by some of the younger folk since the Town Church Memorial has been mooted. But I want to preface my imperfect sketch of his life with the opening sentence in Walter Nursey's "Story of Isaac Brock" for the Canadian Heroes Series: "That Isaac Brock is entitled to rank as the foremost defender of the flag Western Canada has seen is a statement which no one familiar with history can deny." Now to go back 150 years, to the year 1769, the year that saw the birth of Napoleon and Wellington. In that year Isaac Brock first saw the light in St. Peter Port, which then had a population of about 8000. We can obtain some idea of what the town looked like in those days when we realize that from Lord de Saumarez' house, where St. Paul's Chapel now stands, there were only eight houses bordering the road to the Castel Church- that St. James' Street and Candie Road were miserable lanes without footpaths. The Grange Road was equally narrow, but it had a footpath. Isaac Brock was one of ten sons, come of a good old fighting stock, and his great ambition was to be a soldier. He delighted in all manly sports, long remembered by his school fellows as the best boxer and swimmer among them, swimming to Castle Cornet and back, a distance of nearly half a mile each way. In his own family he was chiefly remarkable for his extreme gentleness. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
