curl 3 url malformed error

Might anyone know why I'm receiving the following error when trying to use windows command to batch create courses via a csv using the SIS API call:  cmd error: curl: 3 url malformed?


I'm using the following command structure below, by prefixing the file location where my csv file is located, including my token and canvas url: C:\Users\me\Desktop\Canvas>curl -F attachment=@<filename> -H "Authorization: Bearer <token>" \'https://<canvas>/api/v1/accounts/<account_id>/sis_imports.json?import_type=instructure_csv'


Could it be because windows command doesn't support single quotes, which is what cURL statements use to specify JSON data? I also tried removing the backsplash to see if that could be the problem, but it wasn't.  Any ideas/suggestions on how to fix this?
