In 1775, Benedict Arnold and an army of 1100 set off into the Maine wilderness. Enduring floods, frostbite, desertion and starvation, they traversed over 300 miles of untraveled wilderness. While... More > ultimately unsuccessful in their attack on Quebec City, Arnold and his men were lauded as “indefatigable” and “famine-proof” for their courageous feat.

More > the ongoing drug cartel violence in their home country.
