description <p>Of all the protests against the injustices<br />created by Prince Edward<br />Island's notorious "Land Question"<br />duringthe colonial period, none was more<br />radical than the Tenant League during<br />the mid-1860s. Frustrated by the inability<br />— or unwillingness — of officialdom to<br />force large-scale proprietors to dispose of<br />their holdings to the tenantry, thousands<br />of Islanders embarked on an organized<br />campaign of civil disobedience. Almost<br />inevitably, passive resistance turned to<br />bloodshed in a series of incidents that<br />reached their climax with farmers from<br />the Hazel Grove Road in the summer and<br />fall of 1865.</p>
