Quebec 1775: The American Invasion of Canada

Happy New Year! Japanese New Year is basically eating alot of mochi, rice cakes, which is sticky and sends the Japanese Fire Department all over the place helping old people and little kids from choking on it. Grilled fish and lots of other fishy things. But then again, they usually eat these.

Getting back on track. Ian and I played Arnold's Attack on Quebec on the night of December 31, 1775. We recorded our attack on video and have posted it on japanesehighlander channel of youtube.
The video is in 3 parts.
The art work comes from www.cmhg.gc.ca  These will include 1st Batallion Royal Highland Emigrants, 7th Royal Fusiliers and Quebec militia.
