Québec City: The Battle for Canada

Two miles of rolling lawns and broad shade trees commemorate a 15-minute battle on September 13th, 1759, in which Louis-Joseph Marquis de Montcalm lost half of North America to the British. The Plains of Abraham is just one significant historical site as we explore the only walled city north of Mexico. For its unique status, Old Québec City with its magnificent architecture was declared a United Nations World Heritage Site in 1985.
