Introduction Conclusion During the Seven Years' war Loius-Joseph, Marguis de Montcalm led the French in many battles but was defeated in 1759 at the battle of the Plains of Abraham. One of Montcalm's most stunning victories was in 1756 at Carillon. In the battle of Fort Carillon, Montcalm charged a british army that had been sent to destroy the French base. The British fled despite their impressively sized army. Through out the summer of 1759 Montcalm and his troops withstood the british attacks on Quebec. At the battle of the Plains of Abraham, the French charged into war against the approaching British. Unfortunately, during this battle, Montcalm was hit by two bullets. He died early the next morning.
