Originally printed in Lancaster in 1812 by William Greer and revised in 1844. Considered by Howes to be a “mildly scarce” book. This printing of the book contains a memoir of John Joseph Henry by his grandson which provides much detail on Henry’s life before and after his involvement with the American army. Henry was from Pennsylvania and joined a company of riflemen under the command of Captain Matthew Smith in 1775 whose intent was to join up with Arnold’s forces in Boston before their march on Quebec through the Maine woods. The trials and privations of this band of approximately 1,000 men was legendary. They arrived at Quebec in November of 1775 and ultimately suffered a major defeat with the loss of General Montgomery, the wounding of Arnold and the capture of Henry who then spent nine months in a Quebec prison.
