The purpose of "Voices from a Wilderness Expedition" is to reawaken the now silent voices of the brave men who made the historic 1775 march through the Maine wilderness with Benedict Arnold to attack Quebec and conquer Canada. This book is not a chronological history of the expedition, but rather offers details and new information about the lives of the men who participated and, equally important, the journals that chronicaled the hardships of the march. It contains significant new information on both the men and the journals that has never been published. The book features: * First ever bibliography of all prntings of thirty journals written by participants * Three newly discovered journals found in the University of Glasgow Library * Two never before published journals written by privates on the expedition * New biographical information on seven officers * Examination of the career of Col. Roger Enos whose 3 companies left early to return to Cambridge * Identification of Capt Scott, a previously unknown company commander * Transcription of 2nd Isaac Senter journal * Comprehensive roster of names of 1124 officers and men who were on the expedition
