mar 4, 1870 - Thomas Scott is executed
Score -2 Page 68-72
This is very bad for Riel because when he is murdered it makes the Orangemen and Ontarians mad. Since Thomas Scott is "murdered for no reason" 1200 or so men volunteer to go get Riel. They end up capturing Riel and hanging him in the final chapter of the book.
