Example text

However, just after midnight the wind died, the sky cleared, and the attack was cancelled - fortuitously as it turned out, as a prisoner and a deserter had escaped and warned Carleton. Montgomery changed his plan, but now had another problem to deal with - smallpox. A second hospital was established three miles (5km) away, but it was soon overflowing and, despite orders to the contrary, many men inoculated themselves. On the afternoon of 30 December, another storm blew up. 00am he ordered the troops to form up.

Allen, with 30 men detached by Brown and 80 of his own (mostly Canadians), would cross from Longueuil and attack from the north. Allen ferried his men across during the night of 25 September and by dawn was awaiting the signal that Brown was ready. It never came. Allen sent men to find Brown (who was still at Laprairie) and to obtain help from Thomas Walker inside the city. Walker tried to talk several fellowcitizens into unlocking the city gates, but by now a local man had spotted Allen and informed Carleton.

Montgomery set out from Crown Point with 1,500 men on 30 August and by 2 September was at Ile-aux-Noix, where Schuyler joined him two days later. Despite poor health, Schuyler was determined to lead his men into Canada, which he did on 5 September. As his boats approached St Johns, British guns opened fire but did little damage, and the troops landed in a swamp about a mile from the fort. As they advanced on the fort they were ambushed by 100 Indians under Lorimier. Overcoming the initial shock, Schuyler's men fought back, with Lorimier losing four dead and five wounded.
