Edward J. Dodson, M.L.A. How the French Lost their Foothold in North America PART TWO

PowerPoint Presentation:

“There is now a peace between English and French and since white men are always more concerned with money than with glory, there will soon come men swarming like the white man’s honey bees, to take up land and live where their soldiers now tremble to stay. Great problems are sure to come for us.”

“This is good country, ideal for settlement. It is fine, rich, level land, well timbered with a great number of little streams and rivulets; full of beautiful natural meadows, with wild rye, blue-grass, and clover, and abounding with turkeys, elks, deer, and most sorts of game, particularly buffaloes, thirty or forty of which are frequently seen in one meadow.”
