Wolfe at Quebec


In 1759, a 15-minute battle ended a 10-week siege and won Quebec and Canada for Britain. Personal and official documents tell the story of the daring assault which led to the capture of this key citadel. The heroic exploits of James Wolfe, and his character, are revealed in hands-on documents and in the Broadsheets. Students may “read all about it” in the replica newspapers, plus enjoy the interesting public notices and ads from 1759.
