Saint-Laurent-de-l'Île-d'Orléans, Québec, Canada - 1759 - In the summer of 1759, Île d’Orléans was evacuated prior to the arrival of the Royal Navy and the English troops under the command of General Wolfe.

He established a military camp on the island to keep watch on Quebec City and the channels of the St. Lawrence River. The buildings on the island were nearly all razed after Wolfe’s defeat on July 31 at L’Ange-Gardien. Only a few homes were spared. en/ ile-d-orleans/ history-of-ile-d-orleans/
