Day 135, August 4

In 1865, Captain Gustave Drolet started to think about the Revolutionary War and that the British had gotten a raw deal in it.  The Canadian Army Captian  decided on the spur of the moment to leave his Canadian Army base and make a sneak attack on Ft. Montgomery in New York.

He and his orderly crossed the border in a horse and wagon, making good progress along the country roads until they reached the town of Camplain Village.

The townsolk, holding a parade to mourn the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, saw the Canadian captain in his uniform and greeted him as a representative of the British Empire and Queen Victoria.
