1775 Expedition to Quebec

An alphabetical index of the 1,125 men who served in Benedict Arnold’s expedition to Quebec.
My book Voices from a Wilderness Expedition contains a list of the men by company and the sources that I used to place each name on the list. I did not have enough space in the book for this alphabetical list.

Identification of Journal Author of Anonymous Journal which was listed in my book. (2013)
At the time of publication, I did not know who had written the journal. Thanks to Steve Burk who did most of the research to discover who actually wrote the journal. Our joint article, “Anonymous Journalist on Arnold’s March to Quebec...” was published in Early America Review’s Winter/Spring 2013 issue.

Reference for an early publication of the Journal of Return J. Meigs. (January 23, 2015)
This was in the issue of the Edinburgh Evening Courant, Monday, November 18, 1776. This journal is a different version from the Massachusetts Historical Society version which is referenced in my book. An important new find for those interested in the Arnold expedition.

Arnold Expedition journal (March 31, 2017)
Many thanks to Mark Sullivan who contacted me about this journal which I had never heard of before, written by Freeman Judd and Daniel Judd. Mark provided me with a reference from the November 12, 1949 Antiquarian Bookman which has a listing from Old Corner Bookstore in Boston as follows: Freeman and Daniel Judd. Journal of the Expedition to Quebec (Under Benedict Arnold, 1775-1776). Obviously some number of copies of the transcription of this journal was published and sold to the public and the Old Corner Bookstore had a copy for sale. According to Sylvester Judd, who wrote a history of the Judd family in 1854, the journal had been published prior to the time he wrote his book. If anyone out there reads this and has any information on the journal please contact me.
