Scenario Description
During the attack on Quebec Benedidt Arnold led half of the Americans to attack the north end of the lower town while Montgomery led the other half against the south lower town. Arnold's advance would be a street to street fight within the confines of narrow roads lined with buildings. The main street was blocked by a series of road blocks. As Arnold advanced towards the barricades his advance party moved around the Palace Gate. Heavy fire broke out from the city walls above them. The height of the walls made it impossible to return the defenders' fire. Arnold ordered his men to run forward.

Battle Narrative
The Battle of Quebec was fought on December 31, 1775, between American Continental Army forces and the British defenders of Quebec City early in the American Revolutionary War. The battle was the first major defeat of the war for the Americans, and it came with heavy losses. General Richard Montgomery was killed, Benedict Arnold was wounded, and Daniel Morgan and more than 400 men were taken prisoner. The city's garrison, a motley assortment of regular troops and militia led by Quebec's provincial governor, General Guy Carleton, suffered a small number of casualties.
