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

PowerPoint Presentation:

(Fort Carillon)

PowerPoint Presentation:

Marquis Louis Montcalm.

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Everything is horribly dear in this country, and I shall find it hard to make the two ends meet, with the twenty-five thousand francs the King gives me.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

John Campbell

PowerPoint Presentation:

Louis Antoine de Bougainvile

PowerPoint Presentation:

“There must be some connection between M. de Vaudreuil and M. Bigot, for the latter engages in peculations almost openly, yet without reproval. M. Bigot … claims of himself that he is the backbone of the colony and that he is establishing what he calls the ‘Great Society’ – but its greatness has thus far been of benefit only to M. Bigot and those who are his accomplices.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Governor Vaudreuil Quebec

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… the Governor of Montreal enjoys a trading post which is worth immense sums to him. This line of business, he makes quite sure, will never by known to the Minister for the colonies. …”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“On the ninth they started to issue horsemeat to the troops. The women of Montreal went and threw it at M. de Vaudreuil’s feet. …The guilt is largely with the peculators in M. Bigot’s Great Society, who have so created a monopoly that trade is dead and prices beyond what any but the extremely rich can afford to pay.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

General James Abercromby

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Rapacity, folly, intrigue, falsehood, will soon ruin this colony which has cost the King so dear. We must not flatter ourselves with vain hope; Canada is lost if we do not have peace this winter. It has been saved by miracle in these past three years; nothing but peace can save it now in spite of all the efforts and the talents of M. de Montcalm.”
