That they had volunteered for a mystery project, below Arnold’s command to march and paddle just about 200 miles and take hold of British Quebec.

In the course of a howling snow fall, the rest troops attacked Quebec and nearly took Canada from the British concurrently weakening the British hand towards Washington. With the enigmatic Benedict Arnold at its heart, Tom Desjardin has written probably the most nice American journey tales.
