Description

Detailed plan of the Siege of Quebec, illustrating action during the early days of the Seven Years War (French & Indian War).

This fascinating map embraces the environs of Quebec City and illustrates the British victory on the Plains of Abraham in 1759, the fateful showdown between the armies of General James Wolfe and the Marquis de Montcalm. It shows the city and topography in carefully rendered detail. All of the main scenes of action surrounding the British siege are shown, including the abortive attack on Beauport, the British Headquarters at Levis and the site of the decisive Battle of the Plains of Abraham. The British fleet, under the overall command of Admiral Saunders, appears in pictographic form.
