The British were losing control in the U.S so they decided to move North and take over the French's territory.
The British captured Louisbourg and destroyed the fortress there which gave them a clear path up the St. Lawrence and to Quebec
In the spring of 1759 General James Wolfe led a campaign to capture Quebec. He sailed from Britain with a massive force consisting of 9000 soldiers, 18000 sailors and many different types of ships.
As the fleet sailed in single file line up the St. Lawrence in June, it stretched a distance of more than 150 km
The fleet anchored near Ile d'Orleans, just downriver from Quebec. Now General Wolfe had to decide where to attack.
The cliffs at the edge of the river are very steep and Quebec sat at the top which made it very difficult to attack.
