Description

Excerpt from Battle Maps and Charts of the American Revolution: With Explanatory Notes and School History References Montgomery succeeded Schuyler (sick) in command of a second expedition, organized at Ticonderoga to invade Canada via Montreal, captured that city November 12th, left Wooster in command, and joined Arnold about Dec. Xst. Advancing through snow drifts ten feet deep, he quartered his men in houses of the suburb of St. Roche, on the Charles River, before dark, Dec. Sth. On the 6th he demanded the surrender of Quebec, but received no reply. On the 9th a battery of six guns and two mortars was planted before St. John's gate. The hard frozen ground and extreme cold rendered regular approaches impracticable, and the small calibre of the'guns rendered them useless for breaching purposes. On the 16th an assault was planned. On the night of the 3oth one column demonstrated against St. John's and St. Louis' gates; one column against Cape Diamond bastion, while one, under Montgomery, toward Kings Yard, beneath Cape Diamond, and a fourth under Arnold, through the lower town, by Porte de Palais, made the chief attacks. Premature signals alarmed the garrison, and in spite of desperate valor, both assaults failed. Montgomery, Mcpherson, Cheeseman and ten others were killed by one discharge of grapeshot. Arnold was wounded, and Morgan, who accompanied him, was taken prisoner with 426 officers and men. Arnold retreated, and the siege was practically abandoned until spring.
