Later he experienced the American blockade of Quebec by Generals Richard Montgomery and Benedict Arnold during the Revolutionary War. Thompson remained in Quebec the rest of his life.

CURTIS, Bruce. Building the Educational State : Canada West, 1836-1871. [Preface by Philip Corrigan]. London, ON: The Falmer Press, The Althouse Press, (1988). First Printing. Pp. (8),[9]-450,(2). Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. A volume in the Studies in Curriculum History series. "This book traces political conflict over educational organization in Canada West from the turbulent decade of the 1830s to the educationalsettlement of 1850, under which most sections of the governing classes agr eed to the establishment of a centrally-controlled system for the instruction of the masses. The practical organization and administration of this system of state education is detailed for its formative period, from the educational settlement of 1850 to the first systematic revision of the system in1871. The book demonstrates and details the processes whereby a state syst em of education first destroyed or marginalized an early system of locally controlled elementary education, and then put in place a set of disciplinary practices and procedures aimed at the population as a whole. The conflicts and struggles surrounding the reconstruction of popular education are documented. The failure of attempts by state educational administrators to putin place a system of instruction which would produce 'cheerful and willing obedience' are considered in chapters dealing with physical violence at sc hool conflicts over attendance norms, over curriculum, and over the qualifications of teachers." - from the dustjacket.
