Commemorative Plaque

In Memory of Montcalm

During the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, the French General Louis-Joseph Marquis de Montcalm was killed. His funeral was celebrated in the only place of worship to have been partly spared during the bombings: our chapel! As the story goes, a bomb had broken through the floor, and Montcalm was buried in the crater it formed. But his body is no longer buried here. In 2001, his body was exhumed and buried with his soldiers in the crypt of the Hôpital-Général de Québec, where together they may rest in peace.

The plaques themselves were installed during various commemorative ceremonies.
