理查蒙哥玛利 (Richard Montgomery) 将军攻占蒙特娄


17751113日,理查蒙哥玛利将军率领美国军队攻占了蒙特娄。同年的秋天,乔治华盛顿将军派遣班尼狄克阿诺 (Benedict Arnold) 攻占加拿大的魁北克市。不过,美国军队攻占加拿大的时间并不长。

Have Canada and the United States ever been at war with each other? While the two nations never engaged in formal war as independent countries, America did try to conquer its neighbor to the north when Canada was a colony of England. America's attempts to invade Canada were never successful, and at least three of the officers who led assaults on Canada ended up court-martialed, dead, or exiled.

On November 13, 1775, General Richard Montgomery led American troops in the capture of Montreal. In the autumn of that same year, General George Washington ordered Benedict Arnold to capture the Canadian city of Quebec. Their presence in Canada, however, was not long lasting.
