A Canadian's View Of General Henry Dearborn


From The War of 1812: A History....,  By Gilbert Auchinleck:

"We have already shown that General Dearborn was (if we may so express it) his own master, and almost unfettered by instructions, during the entire autumn of 1812. He had ample time, with adequate means to prepare an army of five or six thousand strong, whom, if it had been only to keep them healthy, it would have been better to put in motion. The English Generals had many greater difficulties to contend with, in defending Canada, than the Americans to conquer it."
