理查蒙哥玛利 (Richard Montgomery) 将军攻占蒙特娄

为了到达加拿大,阿诺率领了700人的部队,穿越了环境恶劣的缅因州荒野。当他们与蒙哥玛利将军的部队会和之后,美国士兵开始攻击魁北克。蒙哥玛利将军在这场战役中战死。而受到重伤的阿诺也撤回到纽约州的泰孔德洛加堡 (Fort Ticonderoga) 。虽然阿诺在1775年时是一位忠心的美国军官,但是四年之后,他却被认为是协助英国的叛国贼。

在和英国的1812年战争中,美国曾经一再入侵加拿大。然而,威廉赫尔 (William Hull) 将军却带领部队立即离开加拿大。赫尔后来被军事法庭以临阵怯弱的理由判处死刑,不过后来得到赦免。美国与英国在加拿大境内的战争一直持续着,不过到了最后,加拿大与美国还是变成和平的邻居。

To reach Canada, Arnold led his 700 men through the harsh Maine wilderness. After joining forces with Montgomery, the Americans attacked Quebec. Montgomery was killed during their attempt to capture the city. Arnold, severely wounded, retreated to Fort Ticonderoga in New York. Although Arnold was a loyal American officer in 1775, four years later he was branded a traitor for assisting the British.

During the War of 1812 with Britain, the United States once again invaded Canada. Led by General William Hull, the assault was immediately deflected. Hull was court-martialed and sentenced to death for cowardice, though he was later pardoned. Fighting with the British in Canada continued throughout the war, but in the end, Canada and the United States became peaceful neighbors.
