 Related Terms

• Louisbourg
Marquis de Montcalm
Jeffery Amherst


Definition: Brilliant British general who won the two most different battles of the war, Louisbourg and Quebec. He was second in command to Jeffery Amherst but got the lion's share of the duties in these two battles. Notoriously poor in health, he somehow managed to inspire his troops to victory. Right before the Battle of Quebec, he was shot while inspecting his troops. He stayed the course and led them to victory. He later died from his wounds.
