Look what I found
In 1535, Cartier returned to North America with 3 ships and 110 men. He brought Donnacona's sons back with him. They guided the French up the St. Lawrence River, deeper into the continent. They went as far as Stadacona, where Donnacona and his people lived.
Cartier and his crew decided to stay the winter. They built a small log fort near Stadacona. Many of the crew became ill and died from scurvy, a disease brought on by a lack of vitamin C.The Haudenosaunee taught the French how to make the cure by boiling pieces of white cedar.
