    As the son of an Irish member (think of our school colors!) of the British Parliament, General Richard Montgomery served as a captain in the British Army in the Seven Years' War, then became the second-ranking brigadier general in the Continental Army, led troops into Canada, captured two forts, as well as the city of Montreal, before he lost his life in the attack on Quebec in a fierce snowstorm on December 31, 1775. Let's remember the sacrifices of our school namesake as we consider our collective history and future. (John Trumbull painted this inspiring image in 1786.)
