British Soldier Comic Part 2
This storyboard does not have a description.
Later on, Wolfe ordered thousands of his soldiers to attack Beauport Shore which was near Quebec city. The French commander knew what was coming, and sent his men to defend their land. The British were defeated, but General James Wolfe had another plan.
They are coming to attack! Send troops fast!
After the defeat, Wolfe decided to make it look like they would attack Beauport shore again. He had sent multiple ships to make it look as if they would attack, but instead, they observed the French's defences.
General James Wolfe first planned on attacking Beauport shore, but later decided to take a risk and attack Quebec from the west side. To do this, his men would have to climb a steep path called the Anse-au-Foulon. If his men are able to do it, he could get right next to Quebec itself. He later sent some of his men to pretend that they had a message from the French General. When the guards let them in, they had killed them with knives. After that, Wolfe sent thousands of other men up the path, and onto the Plains of Abraham, an open field on the west of Quebec.
General James Wolfe and his army stayed on the Plains of Abraham, because Quebec itself was protected behind walls. The British waited for Montcalm to sent troops to fight them, but a lot of his best men had been tricked to go to Beauport shore already. When the french came, the British used a strategy called "The Thin Red Line" to eventually defeat the French and take over Quebec. Unfortunately, both Wolfe and Montcalm died in the battle.
After the French's loss, Britain would have to take over Quebec. The French were allowed to keep certain aspects of their prior rules like being able to practice the Roman Catholic religion.
The Seven Years War had finally ended when the British and the French signed a peace treaty in Paris, in the year 1763. New France had remained British land.
