The Battle of the Plains of Abraham decided the fate of Canada. Would it stay under French rule, or end up in English hands. A fleet of British ships sailed down the St. Lawrence river to the Quebec, the capital of New France. There was a strip of flat strip of beach that would make an ideal landing point. However, the French had highly concentrated most of their defenses at the beach, so it would be almost impossible to take Quebec by that route. There was another place where they could take Quebec from. Nobody would think of invaders using the cliffs southwest of the beach to get to Quebec, but a force under the command of General James Wolfe landed there. They climbed up the cliffs and began the march to Quebec. The French General Montcalm, upon realizing that there were troops closing on Quebec, rushed 2 armies to the Plains of Abraham, where the final conflict would happen.
