Stories

At the Battle of Longue-Pointe during the Revolutionary War, Allen was only instructed to raise militia force among the locals. But Allen thought he could win against the British with the reinforcement of Major John Brown's troops. Unfortunately, Brown never showed up and Allen had no choice but to surrender to Guy Carleton of Britain on 25 September 1775.
