Arnold's March to Quebec

Benedict Arnold, 1775

The final military chapter of Fort Western was a staging area for Benedict Arnolds's march to Quebec. In September 1775, Benedict Arnold and 1,100 soldiers stayed at the old fort as they prepared for the assault on Quebec. Arnold stayed at Captain James Howard's Great House upriver from the fort while his officers, Daniel Morgan, and Aaron Burr, stayed with his son, William, in the old Garrison.
