Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - November 4, 1970, Winnipeg, ManitobaHistory today Washington failed to capture Canada by Bob Bowman George Washington who was a former Brit ish army officer had no compunction about going to War against his Mother country but he was reluctant to attack the British North american colonies when he finally decided to Send armies to capture Montreal and Quebec he ordered them to try not to cause canadians any inconvenience later in the War he was very angry when a . Navy ship looted Charlottetown instead of patrolling the Gulf of St. Lawrence As it was sup posed to do. I perhaps Washington s reluctance was partly responsible for his failure to capture what is now Canada. He considered two plans. One was to at tack Montreal and Quebec As had done when Canada belonged to France. The other was to capture Nova Scotia which included new Brunswick in those Days and Seal off the St. Lawrence. Washington chose the wrong plan. Montreal was captured easily but Quebec held on until May 1776, when the Royal Navy got ships up the St. Lawrence and the americans had to Retreat across the Border. If Washington had chosen the other plan the americans could have captured Nova Scotia easily. Halifax was the Only important military Garrison and nov. 4, 1775, there were Only 390 soldiers fit for duty furthermore Many of the Nova Scot ians had come from the new England states to replace the acadians who had been expelled. Although the Nova Scot ians had refused to join the 13 colonies the revolt against Britain they were sympathetic to the american cause at the outset and there would have been Little Resis Tance to invasion. If the americans had occupied the maritime and blockaded the St. Lawrence the Royal Navy could not have saved Canada.
