In 1759, the British decided they wanted Quebec for Themselves. General James Wolfe led this invasion. Once the British had made there lines, Marquis de Montcalm (the leader of the French) had two choices. They could either attack the British at that moment, or wait for reinforcements. General Wolfe prayed for the French to attack without the reinforcements, and his wish came true.
Before the French could make there lines, the British would shoot canon balls at them to create disorder. This worked well, the French army never really got settled. This was the French's downfall. Because the French's lines were so confusing, there army crumbled.
After only 15 minutes of battle, General Wolfe got shot in the chest. Wolfe was not the only leader to die. When the French retreated back to the gates of Quebec, Marquis de Montcalm was caught in a stamped of his troops, and got shot. The British followed the fleeing French, but as they got closer, First Nations hidden in the forest attacked them. This however did not stop the British. The French abandoned Quebec, leaving it to the British.
