Excerpt from The Fight With France for North America
Wolfe's life, on the other hand, but partially touches on the struggle which destroyed the French power in America, though he is the hero of it. For Wolfe ﬂashed like a meteor on a contest already many years old, and vanished in a blaze of glory that, though decisive in a sense, was not by any means the closing scene. Every schoolboy knows, or is popularly, though probably very erroneously, sup posed to know, the details of the Plains of A braham, but I will undertake to say that there are many thou sands of schoolmasters who have never so much as even heard of the still bloodier battle of St. Foy, fought upon the same ground, within six months, by the same troops while, so far as my experience goes, the memories of Braddock's defeat, Ticonderoga or Louisbourg are much more often than not of the haziest description, and sometimes are barely even memories in quarters where such recognition would be most expected.
