   1775: American Revolutionary forces captured Montreal, In an attempt
   to prevent the British from using Canada as a base for attack, two
   American armies were dispatched, one under General Richard Montgomery
   who would advance on Montreal, the other under Benedict Arnold, with
   the purpose of capturing Quebec City. The attack on Montreal was
   successful, however the invasion of Quebec failed. Montgomery was
   mortally wounded during this campaign. Arnold took command of the
   majority of American troops remaining in Canada. He would remain in
   Canada until the Spring of 1776, and then begin his precarious retreat
   to New York, by way of Lake Champlain, relentlessly pursued by the
   British under General Sir Guy Carleton. General Arnold managed to
   assemble an improvised Naval force, which would engage the British on
   Lake Champlain. The Americans were badly defeated, but their actions
   delayed the British almost until the onset of winter, preventing their
   joining main British force on Staten Island.
