Product Description

From the early 19th century comes a history rich with heroic tales and epic battles as the early explorers wrestled civilizations out of the bare earth of North America. This time was marked with fierce conflicts and political skirmishes.
The strategy was simple enough; the goal was the conquest of Canada. The old invasion route into Canada by way of Lake Champlain and the Richelieu River led directly to the most populous part of the enemy's territory. The capture of Montreal would cut the line of communications upon which the British defense of Upper Canada depended, and the fall of the province would be inevitable.
The US Campaign of 1813 to Capture Montreal tells the story of the struggle between the United States and Britain as they both attempt to be the victor in the capture of Montreal in this important event in the War of 1812. This heroic adventure is set along the St. Lawrence River of southern Canada and northern New York, and comprises many additional locations of modern history such as Fort Covington, Chateaugay and Burlington, VT.
Included are original maps and reports by some of the important figures in this account.
