September 12-13, 1759 Battle of Quebec

Once again, whites focused their attention on a region between Montreal and Quebec City which was then, what rightfully can be called a war zone in 1759. Battle of Quebec was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. Since outbreak of war several years earlier, eastern Ojibways had brought Montreal and Quebec City, under a long siege or prevented their French enemies from expanding. English leaders knew they had to militarily support their French allies. To travel in that location down into New York State south of Lake Champlain, was extremely dangerous and that was only too well known of by whites. It had been fairly recent when whites had successfully established another white military presence in and around Lake Champlain, but they didnít control that region yet. It would take whites a couple of more decades before they fully conquered Lake Champlain and land surrounding that body of water. On Wednesday September 12, 1759 a large force of English and French soldiers (almost 17,800 in all) commenced a battle to end a siege Ojibway Soldiers held over Montreal and Quebec City. Since whites obviously were more numerous and had superior weapons, Battle for Quebec City eventually turned out to be a white victory. Using their superior numbers, that large white military force engaged a smaller Ojibway military force, then used their cannons to drive them from Quebec City. Though whites had defeated a large Anishinabe military force holding Quebec City region in a siege, that region between Montreal and Quebec City had yet to be entirely conquered from Anishinabek. White casualties were 174 killed, and at least 1200 wounded.
