ABSTRACT
The article chronicles the historical significance of the Plains of Abraham, located within a park in downtown Quebec City, adjacent to the Citadelle of Quebec and the wails of the Old City. On this broad green space one morning 248 years ago, the fate of a continent was changed with a single fatal volley from a line of muskets. It was the climactic event of the French and Indian War, yet the fight lasted a mere 30 minutes.
