Louise Laframboise- (1810- )
Like other Mothers, Louise Laframboise
“I am losing my sons, grandsons,
maybe more I fear.”
We are losing our homes, there is harm
We are becoming casualties; no peace to
The Battle of Duck Lake claimed Isidore
My son was shot while negotiating for
He left many who will grieve the loss
of his care.
In sadness we stare, life looks so
empty and bare.
My dear grandsons are dying to, Pierre
And others in our clan battle the odds
The Battle of Fish Creek is Gabriel’s
Waging the impossible with success;
he’s the best!
Eduoard is fighting for life at Fish
Creek, I’ve heard
Champagne, Carriere and Nault- I’ve
heard no word
My life is on hold, it is hard to
breath so ill at ease-
My babies are dying for orders
impossible to please.
