When Kenneth Roberts was doing research while writing his classic historical novel ARUNDEL about Benedict Arnold's ill-fated expedition to Quebec in 1775, he compiled a number of primary sources mainly from the journals kept by the soldiers in Arnold's command. He put these sources together and this book is the result of his work.

These journals can give you an insight to one of the strangest episodes of the Revolutionary War as well as a much better understanding of Benedict Arnold the man. Few people know what Arnold really was like and only hear the word "traitor" when they hear his name. This collection of journals by soldiers under his command will help the reader understand that Arnold was one of the most brilliant generals on the American side during the war.

These journals written by American Revolutionary soldiers tell us what camp life was like, the trials they experienced on the march, and day-to-day living in the Continental Army. The journals were kept by Henry Dearborn, Return Meigs, Isaac Senter, Simeon Thayer, John Joseph Henry, James Melvin, Caleb Haskell, George Morison, Abner Stocking Simon Fones, and Ephraim Squiers. Additionally there is a casualty list of the expedition, an essay "Defense of Roger Enos" (who controversially left the expedition early) by a descendant, Horace Hayden.

The collection includes Arnold's journal as well as the official letters he wrote to George Washington, General Montgomery, the Continental Congress, and others during the expedition.

Roberts has annotated the journals, and even though his notes generally are brief, they clarify and supply some background to much of the writing.

I got this book through Amazon's out-of-print book service after reading Kenneth Roberts books Arundel and Rabble in Arms. March to Quebec is history as a primary source, and it is amazing. The volume consists of the journals of then Colonel Benedict Arnold and several of the patriots who accompanied him on his ill-fated march through the Wilderness of Maine during a sneak attack on quebec. The idea, which Arnold and his mentor General Washington cooked up, was to take Quebec and add it as a 14 colony/state. There was much adventure and intrigue. Some famous names invloved on the March are Nathaniel Green, Daniel Morgan, Dearborn, and even a young Aaron Burr. These journals leap off the page and are probably the best journals available outside those of a genration later, Lewis & Clark. Highly recommended.
