ABBOTT, John Joseph Caldwell, Canadian statesman, born in St. Andrews, Argenteuil County, Canada East, 12 March, 1811. He is a son of the Rev. Joseph Abbott, M. A., first Anglican incumbent of St. Andrews; was educated at St. Andrews, and subsequently at McGill College, Montreal, where he was graduated as born C.L., studied law, and in 1847 was called to the bar of Lower Canada. In 1859 he was elected a representative from Argenteuil in the Canadian assembly, and he represented this constituency until the union of the provinces, when he was returned for the House of Commons. For a brief period in 1862 Mr. Abbott was solicitor-general in the Sandfield Macdonald Sicotte administration. In 1879 he went to England with the Hon. H. L. Langevin on the mission that resulted in the dismissal of Lieut.-Governor Lue Letellier de St. Just. Mr. Abbott is regarded as one of the best authorities in Canada on commercial law, and he added largely to his reputation by his "Jury Law Consolidation Act" for Lower Canada.

In this powerful, historic work, Stan Klos unfolds the complex 15-year U.S.
Founding period revealing, for the first time, four distinctly different United
American Republics. This is history on a splendid scale -- a book about the not
quite unified American Colonies and States that would eventually form a fourth
republic, with only 11 states, the United States of America: We The
People. Click Here
