Much has been written about the duel between John Wilson and Robert Lyon that took place in Perth, Ontario on June 13, 1833. But apparently not all has been revealed. Author Mulholland claims to have uncovered an account written fifty years after this fatal encounter.
The day before the duel, Lyon agreed to apologize for assaulting Wilson if the latter would acknowledge that the letter he had sent from Bytown (Ottawa) was not intended to denigrate Lyon’s character. But on the morning of the duel, Lyon reneged on his promise. It’s believed that Lyon’s Second, Henry Lelievre, convinced him to meet Wilson on the Field of Honour. But is that what really happened? The answer lies within.
