MSS-066-Battle for Empire

Maple Stars and Stripes fleur-de-lis logoIn 1759, where were your ancestors living? Were any in Quebec City? Or Beauport? Did they live on the Île d’Orléans? Or on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River? Were they part of the Montreal or Trois-Rivière militia? If so, they had a front row seat during a pivotal moment in our ancestors’ lives.

Today’s guest, Ron Blanchette, takes us on a journey back to that fateful time of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, a battle that changed the course of a nation. We learn about the strategies employed by both the French and the British, the effect of geography on the outcome, and the battle itself.
