American ships were fraudulently transferred to neutral flags. The largest prize of the seven he sent in was the schooner Minerva, of Wiscasset. The Republican war enthusiasts ignored such obvious realities comforting themselves with simplistic and bombastic statements such as Henry Clay’s declaration that “the militia of Kentucky are alone competent to place Montréal and Upper Canada at our feet.” When questioned about how this was to be accomplished much emphasis was placed on the belief that both French and English-speaking Canadians would welcome Americans as liberators.
