Maine Historical Society

This letter written by William A. Drew contains a scrap of paper with the words: "1775 J.B. Dunkirk with Arnold."

Drew describes how the scrap was hidden in the hole of a tree in Augusta for 90 years and discovered when the tree was cut down.

The scrap is a reminder of the soldiers who joined Arnold in his ill-fated march to Quebec along the Kennebec.
