Americans begin siege of Quebec, Canada


Colonel Benedict Arnold and General Richard Montgomery lead an American force in the siege of Quebec, Canada. The American toops hoped to capture the British-occupied city and with it win support for the American cause in Canada.

In June 1775 Congress decided to send two columns of one thousand men each towards Canada. General Richard Montgomery proceeded up Lake Champlain and successfully captured Montreal, Canada in November before reaching Quebec City, Canada.

Colonel Benedict Arnold led his troops through the woods of Maine, approaching Quebec City, Canada directly. On November 14, 1775 Colonel Arnold arrived on the Plains of Abraham outside of Quebec City, Canada. His troops sustained themselves upon dog meat and leather in the cold winter.

The one hundred troops defending Quebec City, Canada refused to either surrender to Colonel Arnold or leave their defenses to fight them on open plains, so Colonel Arnold waited for General Montgomery to join him with his troops and supplies at the beginning of December 1775.

The Royal Governor General of Canada, Sir Guy Carleton, had managed to escape General Montgomery's early successful attacks. Sir Guy Carleton snuck into Quebec, Canada, organized one thousand eight hundred men for the defense of Quebec City, Canada and prepared to wait out the American Patriot's siege.

Colonel Arnold and General Montgomery faced a deadline as their troops enlistments expired at the end of the year. On December 7, 1775 General Montgomery fired arrows over Quebec City, Canada's walls bearing letters demanding Sir Guy Carleton surrender.

When Sir Guy Carleton did not acquiesce, the American troops began a bombardment of Quebec City, Canada with General Montgomery's cannon on December 8, 1775. They then attempted a disastrous failed assault on December 31, 1775 in which General Montgomery was killed and Colonel Arnold seriously wounded.
