January 2nd, 1727 - September 13th, 1759
The British general who won the Battle of the Plains of Abraham
Born in the county of Kent, James Wolfe is a legendary figure in Canadian history. He was a British Army general who had moved up the ranks swiftly, thanks to his courage and to his charismatic personality. He is mainly known for his 1759 victory in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, the opposing leader being the French lieutenant-general Montcalm. The British victory brought about the fall of the city of Québec and signalled the beginning of the end of French colonization in Canada. James Wolfe was mortally wounded during the battle, but remained alive long enough to learn how the combat ended.
