I had the pleasure of driving to Cape Cod with my son and granddaughter this past summer. Along the way there were markers showing where a battle took place. I began to think of just the driving time from Ottawa and the terrible conditions both British and American troops must have had in getting an army so far in the wilderness. I have read of the Americans trek led by General Arnold to try and take Quebec in the middle of the winter. Knowing the winters here very well it was shear horror for these troops. Their courage was unbelievable.
