230th Anniversary Of General Montgomery's Death Today.

In 1775, the British repulsed an attack by Continental Army generals Richard Montgomery and Benedict Arnold at Quebec; Montgomery was killed. Montgomery County, New York was, of course, named after General Montgomery as are the other Montgomery Counties scattered throughout the United States.

  • A forgotten hero of the war. According to all accounts, a very good soldier and a professional. He served as an officer in the British Army before coming to the Colonies. Died storming Quebec. Thanks for reminding me.
