July 31, 1759 Battle of Beauport


This battle was fought on Tuesday July 31, 1759, near what is now Boischatel, Quebec. Quebec City is adjacent to it's west end. A force of 4,000 English Soldiers was sent to that region to reinforce some 10,000 French Soldiers who were battling Ojibway Soldiers. At that time, Quebec was having serious problems with Ojibway Soldiers who kept Quebec under siege like conditions. Unlike English Colonies, Quebec was smaller and also had a much smaller population. Thus, Ojibway Soldiers were capable of dominating Quebec. Battle of Beauport was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. Ojibway Soldiers knew about English ships approaching Quebec and commenced to prepare to battle them and them French also. English Soldiers landed near Montmorency Falls undetected or were set up. That happened around July 8 or 9. They quickly established a camp and batteries. English ships were nearby in St. Lawrence River. On July 31, 1759 more English Soldiers landed and Battle of Beaufort commenced. Ojibway Soldiers were ready for battle and were sort of lucky because a summer storm commenced which soaked gun powder that English military force had. It forced an English retreat from battle. English and French casualties were over 200 killed and well over 200 wounded. In all, nearly 500 English and French Soldiers were killed and wounded. However, England had raised 10,000s of soldiers to reinforce Quebec.
