A new exhibit at the Canadian War Museum offers a look into the key sites of where a famous Canadian battle was fought.

 

1759-2009: The Battle of the Plains of Abraham, marks the 250th anniversary of the battle with 14 images of historical landscapes in and around the city of Québec.

 

The 18th and 19th century representations, located throughout the museum, provide glimpses of the battlefield as seen by participants.

 

“The Battle of the Plains of Abraham is the single most important event in Canadian military history,” said Canadian War Museum director general Mark O'Neill. “The outcome of the encounter between the forces commanded by Louis-Joseph de Montcalm and James Wolfe shaped the destiny of Canada and Canadians.”

The exhibit runs through Jan. 3.
