Congress sent nn 'expedition Into anadfi after it had heard that •Cing George had hired 20 000 German troops to fight against tho "mists'. TIM primary reason for le expedltbn was to prevent Sir Guy Carlcton, governor of Canada 'om Inviiding New York. Another line of American Inva- on was intrusted to Benedict Arold, who,- with 1200 men, made . wr.nderful march through the crste wilderness of Maine to reach !Uebec. Here lie joined forces with Montgomery and they both made a espei.ato .assault upon Quebec. y forced their way Into the own but-Montgrfliory was killed nd Arnold disabled, and the as- ault was finally repulsed. One historian wrote of this exwditlon: "No expedition during the Am- rlpan ' Revolution had less, elc- lents of permanent value'; than hc«c which were undertaken gainst Canada during - the year 775. Great results were anticipat- d, but none were realized- The bstacks were too substantial, and ailure was inevitable."
