I have studied the French and Indian War for many years. To set foot upon the battlefield was a great experience for me. The monuments and placards help tell the story of the Plains of Abraham. It was one of the highlights of my trip.

We learned so much about military battle in Quebec. I also know a descendant of the woman who married Abraham Martin, so it was interesting seeing his role here.

Interesting to learn the history. Go to the museum and watch the show. Lots of room for walking. Jean D' Arc Park is a beautiful garden.

Would love to have spent many more hours in the park, it is very quiet and restful even during the noontime rush.
