Cadillac Landing at Detroit
C.W. Jefferys' notes about this picture from The Picture Gallery of Canadian History Volume 1
In the summer of 1701 La Mothe Cadillac was sent to found a post at Detroit. He took with him one hundred men, his young son, and two missionaries, a Recollet and a Jesuit. Next year his wife made the long journey from Montreal to join him. She was the first white woman to enter that territory.
