In each of the five sieges which Quebec has sustained the strongest defence of the city has been its natural situation. Every besieger first of all had to overcome Quebec s geography.
Many incidents of Wolfe's siege of Quebec reveal the immense contrast between the methods of warfare of to-day and those of two centuries ago.
This work includes two images. The top image is of The Cathedral in Quebec as it appeared after the siege of 1759; while the lower image is of the Church of Notre Dame des Victoires.
