History File

From Tony’s Today in History File…

It was on this day in 1759 that British General James Wolfe landed his army near Quebec City and blocked the St. Lawrence River to French shipping.

After a siege lasting 75 days, the 33-year-old Wolfe led his troops up the cliff behind Quebec City to the Plains of Abraham, where they defeated Montcalm’s garrison and captured the city. Both Wolfe and Montcalm died in battle that led to Quebec surrendering to the British.

And yes…Wolfe Island is named for General James Wolfe.

33 years after the battle it was renamed from Grand Island to Wolfe Island.
