Major General John Small[edit]

Sorry about that. I was trying to remove the copied bit and due to both of us editing at the same time I took out too much. I put it back now. Cheers. Enter CambridgeBayWeather, waits for audience applause, not a sausage 15:31, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Joseph Broussard[edit]

Remove the religious POV you are inserting. If the forces that were being killed were British, say "British". Heironymous Rowe (talk) 20:59, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

And stop marking every edit as "Minor". None of your edits have been minor so far. That check box is for minor changes, such as punctuation, spelling, and a few other things, not for adding, subtracting or rewording whole sentences and paragraphs or adding new material.

The 84th Regiment[edit]

Hi,
You asked how I know that the 84th (Royal Highland Emigrants) Regiment were not in the New York or Philadelphia Campaigns. Well, I thought that I knew. On February 26, I explained my evidence for so concluding on the Regiment’s discussion page under the heading, ‘Campaign Participation’ (I forgot to sign my post at the time, which I have now done.). I am pretty familiar with British regimental participation in the American Revolutionary War and all of the evidence that I could find (which I list on the Discussion Page) pointed to the 84th having no involvement in New York 1776 or Philadelphia 1777. I deleted the bits about the New York, Philadelphia/Monmouth and Penobscot Campaigns because they were uncited (Wikipedia policy encourages users to "aggressively" delete all uncited claims) and because they contradicted all of my available information. I thought (and still think) that the claim about the 84th defending Penobscot in 1779 was down to someone mixing them up with another regiment – the 82nd – and I thought (past tense) that the stuff about NY and PA was the result of similar misconceptions.
Nevertheless, I appear to have been misguided. A new post has been added to the 84th article's Discussion Page, right below mine, from Kim Stacy, who has done research into the 84th and found that companies from the Regiment in fact served in the 2nd Light Infantry Battalion of General Howe’s army; and who writes, “I will be happy to share what I have with you to date”. This is good news and I have emailed Kim Stacy via the address given on the page to make further enquiries. As regards incorporation of Kim Stacy’s findings into the article, everything depends on whether his/her (you don’t know whether a ‘Kim’ is male or female) sources have been published. Wikipedia policy absolutely forbids the use of what it calls “original research” as sources for its articles - to the extent that anything unpublished is out of bounds. I expect that the rationale for this regulation is that information citing published sources can be easily checked for authenticity, whereas information gleaned from archive research cannot. I am hoping that further information from Kim Stacy will be forthcoming.
In the meantime, if you have references that support the 84th’s involvement in the New York and Pennsylvania Campaigns, then do not hesitate to add your information to the article along with citations.
By the way, congratulations on all the sterling work that you have done for the article; helping to give the men of the Royal Highland Emigrants the place in history that they earned.
Best regards, Flonto (talk) 14:34, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hi! While I appreciate the contributions you're making to WP in areas that I also work on, I'd appreciate it if you added categories to your new articles (e.g. your recent article on John Small.

On a more specific note, you've asserted in two articles that Joseph Broussard was present at the Battle of Bloody Creek (1757). I'd really like to know the source for that, since I've not seen it claimed anywhere, and some writers explicitly claim the leaders of the Acadians in that action were unknown.

Copyright problem: John Gorham (military officer)[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as John Gorham (military officer), but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material. This article appears to be a copy from http://www.biographi.ca/009004-119.01-e.php?&id_nbr=1376&&PHPSESSID=ychzfqkvzape, and therefore a copyright violation. The copyrighted text has been or will soon be deleted. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators are liable to be blocked from editing.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under allowance license, then you should do one of the following:

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

If you would like to begin working on a new version of the article you may do so at this temporary page. Leave a note at Talk:John Gorham (military officer) saying you have done so and an administrator will move the new article into place once the issue is resolved. Thank you, and please feel welcome to continue contributing to Wikipedia. Happy editing! VernoWhitney (talk) 19:04, 5 May 2010 (UTC)


Hello - I thought that I had changed the text sufficently. I apologize given that this is apparently not the case. I am interested in reworking the page with other references than the Canadian Bio if I can have the opportunity. --Hantsheroes (talk) 00:04, 6 May 2010 (UTC)--Hantsheroes (talk) 00:04, 6 May 2010 (UTC)--Hantsheroes (talk) 00:04, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Feel free to to rewrite it at the temporary page linked to from the article. An admin will review the page in a week and take it from there. Keep in mind while writing that you have to avoid a close paraphrase (which is why I blanked it) and this is generally easier to do if you start entirely from scratch and relying upon multiple sources rather than trying to rework existing material from a single source. Cheers! VernoWhitney (talk) 00:43, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Hello -I have substantially reworked the piece and posted it. I will continue to add new references. Is there anything else I need to do to address this issue?--Hantsheroes (talk) 19:07, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

I'll take a look at it later today when I have more time. VernoWhitney (talk) 19:31, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I sat down and read them side by side and most of what you rewrote looks good. There were a couple of paragraphs where you just removed sentences that I feel are still a problem (the Siege of Louisbourg and the first paragraph of Battle of Grand Pre) as they still parallel the source too closely. The second one in particular I know that you removed some sentences, but what you left is still a copyright problem. I know rewriting is a pain, so I appreciate you taking the time to rework the article. I've narrowed the blanking so it only covers those two paragraphs. VernoWhitney (talk) 23:41, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Image provenance[edit]

You uploaded the image File:DonaldMacDonald84thRegiment.jpg, claiming on the description page that you created the work yourself. I (and the GA reviewer at Talk:Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge/GA1) are skeptical that you actually painted the image yourself. Can you tell me who painted the image (and when they painted it), and where it (the artwork, since this is presumably a photograph you took) is located? Thanks! Magic♪piano 13:35, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Taking a picture of an artwork doesn't make it your own creation. It looks like it is probably old enough to be Public Domain, or 70 yrs after the death of the artist. You should attribute it to the original artist and give the year it was created, this should clear up any problems. Heiro 17:43, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

I could only find out that the image was purchased at auction and is in a "private collection. I'm not sure what this means in terms of wiki criteria for images and copyright. Maybe it needs to be taken down. Magicpiano - great editing on the site.--Hantsheroes (talk) 07:48, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Images that do not have adequate provenance -- obviously incorrect sourcing or licensing -- may be deleted (see commons:Commons:Deletion policy for a more complete story). This is not something I would pursue in this case, since, as Heironymous points out, the image is very probably in the public domain due to its age. The inadequate provenance means at a minimum that articles cannot pass formal (GA, A-class, or FA) reviews with such images in them. You should always seek to identify (1) when the image (i.e. the artwork) was created (2) by whom (3) when that person died (4) when the image might have been published. If you have a photograph of something three-dimensional (a sculpture or a painting in its frame), you also need the same information about the photograph, since it is then separately copyrightable. All of this information is needed to determine whether or not an image is in the public domain. (As a rule, you should also try to find out where the original artwork is located if you do not know. Finding this out may direct you to a museum website with potentially more information or a higher quality image.) Magic♪piano 22:03, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Suggest User page[edit]

You recent edit on French and Indian War popped up and noticing your redlinked userpage, I immediately clicked on your talk page to congratulate you on making a great edit, when I realized that you have made over 3000 edits. User pages are a great place to tell people a little about who they are interacting with and make the Wikipedia experience less impersonal as well as give a sense of who has a firm grasp of Wikipedia and the code and stuff. I would strongly suggest making one, even if it only includes some of your interests editing here. Also, User pages make great desk tops, as you can see mine is a place where I keep links, and pages I have commitments to and other tasks that I am working on. Oh, and by the way, great eye for the link on French and Indian War! Sadads (talk) 00:43, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Kind words[edit]

Thank you for your kind words, and your work on the campaigns of the Acadian expulsion; those have filled a huge void. By the way, I had also intended to eventually write up d'Iberville's Newfoundland expedition -- well done! Magic♪piano 02:49, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Source question[edit]

Do you have the page numbers for your addition to the Massachusetts article? I don't doubt that it's legitimate, and its not that big of a deal, but page numbers should generally be given along with the book. (I'm trying to bring the article up to GA status in the next month or two, and it's likely the reviewer will want specific pages). AlexiusHoratius 20:41, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! (Again, not that big of a deal, but it'll help during a GA review.) AlexiusHoratius 00:39, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

I hereby award Hantsheroes The Exceptional Newcomer Award for displaying exceptional enthusiasm, skill, and boldness.Moxy (talk) 18:06, 6 October 2010 (UTC)


well your doing well thus far...Would love to see you join a few Wikipedia:WikiProject like Wikipedia:WikiProject Nova Scotia ....That said i have two suggestion if you dont mind...one is and edit summary would help to make sure your editions do not get reverted...

A four-line window. The top line says "Edit summary (Briefly describe the changes you have made)". The second line is a blank input area. The third is one checkbox for "This is a minor edit" and another for "Watch this page". The last line contains buttons "Save page", "Show preview", "Save Changes", and a non-button "Cancel".
The edit summary field appears above the "Save page" button.


Then for references we have templates you can use if you wish...this will allow you to add more helpful info to refs like isbn numbers and links to books etc...See Wikipedia:Citation templates for all the different kinds (ps what your doing now is fine and this is simply a suggestion.)

<ref>{{Cite book
  | last = 
  | first = 
  | authorlink = 
  | coauthors = 
  | title = 
  | publisher = 
  | date = 
  | location = 
  | pages = 
  | url = 
  | doi = 
  | id = 
  | isbn = }}</ref>

Expulsion of Acadians[edit]

Why do you keep removing the reference to the removals being ethnic cleansing? The removals are one of the history's classic examples of ethnic cleansing. The major historians of the topic (Plank, Faragher) are crystal clear on this. And this is old news. It already said "forced removal" - why do you take offense at "ethnic cleansing" - Here are three different dictionary and encyclopedia entries on ethnic cleansing: 1) "The systematic elimination of an ethnic group or groups from a region or society, as by deportation, forced emigration, or genocide." 2. "the attempt to create ethnically homogeneous geographic areas through the deportation or forcible displacement of persons belonging to particular ethnic groups" (Brittanica), and 3. "the expulsion, imprisonment, or killing of an ethnic minority by a dominant majority". Another encyclopedia uses this definition: "the elimination of unwanted ethnic groups by deportation, forcible displacement, or genocide." Here are links to articles, sites and books all openly acknowledging and discussing the removals as a well-known example of ethnic cleansing. They are by historians, government officials, legal scholars, etc., not some lone blogger:

http://www.law.ualberta.ca/centres/ccs/issues/legrandderangement.php — Preceding unsigned comment added by Breeze009 (talkcontribs) 21:28, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

There is not unanimity among leading historians that using the term "ethnic cleansing" is appropriate in referring to the Expulsion of the Acadians. I have tried to reference the different historians in the "Historical Comparisons" section on the Expulsion of the Acadians article. I haven't yet included historian John G. Reid who also disagrees with using the term. John Grenier is also quite critical of Faragher (see his preface to War in Nova Scotia). I think using the phrase "forced removal" is as close as the unanimity gets. I would recommend that we develop the Historical Comparisons section using some of the footnote content you put on the John Gorham article along with what I have. We could refer people to the historical comparison section the first time "forced removal" is used. Rather than the article taking a position on using the term ethnic cleansing, as you know, wiki is interested in showing the different sides of any particular issue. What do you think?--Hantsheroes (talk) 23:39, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Dear Hantsheroes: I like the "Historical Comparisons" section very much. Its a great idea. Excellent how you presented many different sides and competing interpretations. That way you show people the range of the interpretation and this gives readers, who are so inclined, the opportunity to investigate different schools of thought. Well done. This is a great solution to competing interps. I may clean it up a bit, in terms of moving some of the citations that are in-text to footnotes. Keep up the good work. Breeze009 (talk) 05:57, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Great. I wonder if we should copy our discussion to the talk page of the Expulsion of the Acadians because I'm sure other editors will continue to run into this. Or perhaps the footnote is enough. What do you think?--Hantsheroes (talk) 16:15, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:DonaldMacDonald84thRegiment.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:DonaldMacDonald84thRegiment.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 00:55, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Father Le Loutre's War[edit]

I'm just wondering which source(s) call it "Father Le Loutre's War"; I have never seen these skirmishes collected in this way before. Can you give page references, please. Verne Equinox (talk) 18:22, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

John Grenier puts forward the "Father Le Loutre's War" frame on these series of conflicts in his books The Far Reaches of Empire: War in Nova Scotia 1710-1760 (University of Oklahoma Press, 2008) and The first way of war: American war making on the frontier, 1607-1814 (Cambridge University Press, 2005). He outlines his rational for naming these conflicts as Father Le Loutre's War. Do you think I need to be more explicit about these references in the article? --Hantsheroes (talk) 00:40, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Very much so (the references). It is a helpful concept, but is is new. There aren't too many commoners with wars named after them! I think you also need to say something about Le Loutre himself and his motivations, such as we understood them. Presumably Grenier has something on this. I also note that your article on Le Loutre no few references for Le Loutre' bio. You should add them, including page refs. FYI, there is a coding trick in Wikipedia that allows you to provide inline page refs. It is this templeate: :p.xyz that you place immediately after the "ref" as in this example.

Father Rale's War[edit]

Hello Hantsheroes,

I am writing to you because you are the writer of the majority of the article. It has been noticed during the translation in French that Lovewell has died twice (paragraph Battle of Pequawket). Quite strange isn't it? Could you please have a look? Regards, Skiff (talk) 04:06, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Raid on Grand Pre[edit]

I am not bias against new englanders, since I live in New England. However, the image of Church instead of Grand Pre, is as sinister as putting James Eagan Holmes` photo instead of the Aurora cinema photo in 2012 Aurora shooting. You forget that Church attack a people who had nothing to do with the Raid on Deerfield. Like attacking Virginians for what Massachusetts did. Furthemore, he went out of his way not only to kill people, burn their homes, destroy their crops, but scalp them as well. Church is nothing but another Holmes, and I have no bias against people living in Colorado for that.--Donnacona (talk) 01:39, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Father Le Loutre's War[edit]

Tell me, why did you name it Father Le Loutre's War and not the Anglo-Mi'kmaq War? Furthermore, why Father Rale's War, and not the Anglo-Wabanaki War? The two priests were not part of all the conflicts involving the Abenakis and the Mi'kmaqs against the English colonists? Le Loutre was twice captured by the English and was not in Acadia for at least two years. Father Rale or Rasle, was also not involved in all the Abenaki retaliations.--Donnacona (talk) 15:33, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Overlap with Chignecto / Tantramar topics?[edit]

Hi there. I've been updating Sackville, New Brunswick and have noticed that there's a fair bit of content that is repeated for example among the topics Tantramar Marshes, Isthmus of Chignecto, Beaubassin, Fort Beauséjour etc. I've already tried to discuss this on talk pages for Sackville and Tantramar. I had the idea that the Tantramar article could focus more on the natural environment, while the scope of the Sackville article would stick closer to the human history of the area. My concern is that anyone clicking around in the pages is going to be confused as to the context of various historical events. Also it is more difficult to maintain content that is repeated in a number of places. What do you think? --Cornellier (talk) 00:40, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

I think it makes sense to put only the natural environment material on the marshes site. I see the repetition. I think beaubassin could be put with the Chignecto article. I see the chignecto article as covering more than the sackville area. What do you think?--Hantsheroes (talk) 04:21, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I was a little frustrated that you reverted my edit to the Georges Island article without explanation.

Speedy deletion nomination of Mi'kmaq Warrior Society[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Mi'kmaq Warrior Society requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a club, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. ~ twsx | talkcont | ~ 16:08, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

I see some edits, but the material still looks like a wp:close paraphrase. Are you the author of the original?--S Philbrick(Talk) 21:18, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

I am the author of the original. --Hantsheroes (talk) 23:20, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks.S Philbrick(Talk) 01:13, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi! I'm here for the same reason as Sphilbrick - the flagging by the bot. Could I ask you two things: could you please, when you copy content within Wikipedia, make sure that you give attribution, as discussed at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia#Attribution is required for copyright; I know of course that you are the principal contributor at Northeast Coast Campaign (1745), but you're not the only one. And, please, could you perhaps leave an edit summary when you edit? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 12:24, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Actually User:Justlettersandnumbers, unless you are discussing a different issue, the material came from an external source, not within Wikipedia. I failed to follow up on the point I should have made, because I got distracted. @Hantsheroes, we need some way of verifying that it is OK to copy that material. There are at least two options. The easiest one, if it is possible, is for you to add a note to the original source indicating that the material is licensed with an acceptable license, such as {{cc-by-sa-3.0}}. Another option is to send an email to OTRS, stating that you are the author, and providing the license. More details at Donating copyrighted materialsS Philbrick(Talk) 12:32, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, Sphilbrick, I'm probably well adrift here, not for the first time (and, I fear, probably not for the last, either). I did not see any problem with the external source identified by the bot because that content was posted on 5 September 2013, and the closely similar content at Northeast Coast Campaign (1745), later copied without attribution to the new article, was created by Hantsheroes on 26 February 2012. Am I misreading that, or did you come across some other external source? I was about to provide attribution for the in-wiki copying, but will now hold off until this is fully clear. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 12:49, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
No, I don't think you are adrift, looks like you have done more homework than I have. I focused on the creation date of the present article which was 20 June 2014, and missed the existence of the 1745 campaign article. Nice catch, which means it is likely the Wikipedia material came first. So you r information about how to properly attribute when copying within Wikipedia is on point. It might seem odd to some, that you have to attribute material that you wrote yourself, but that's the rule, as I understand it.--S Philbrick(Talk) 12:58, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, that's a mild relief, thank you. I've put a {{copied}} tag on the two talk pages. If in future Hantsheroes would be kind enough to the same for any similar situations it would probably save time all round. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 14:41, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you both for your attention to this matter. I was copying wiki from text I contributed to wiki. I will note when I copy material from one wiki article to another in the future and will be more diligent about adding edit descriptions. --Hantsheroes (talk) 16:44, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
