Fate of America
Meet between a documentarist Jacques Godbout and a playwright Rene-Daniel Dubois, this famous film with humor and emotion, the myth founder of the Canada. September 13rd, 1759, James Wolfe and the Marquis de Montcalm clash on the plains of Abraham to Quebec. The exit of the battle, with the death of the two generals and the victory of England, seals the fate of the News-France and inaugurates the cohabitation of two lonelinesses which will give rise to the country.
The two scenario writers not being historians take pleasure to make believe that the fate of America it is played Bataille of Quebec in 1759. According to their version the Battle of Yorktown in 1781 existed forever.
What wrongfully makes them conclude that English beat French in America. The two scenario writers thus allot wrongfully the effects of the invasion of Quebec in 1759 by English to the effects of the English defeat with Yorktown in 1781.
Wrongfully they conclude that English brought the democracy to the Inhabitants of Quebec and that it is France which lost the area of New France for Canada whereas they are English who while losing in Yorktown which lost New France for Canada.
Actually, the Battle of Quebec between 1759 and 1783 did not have the importance which the Canadians currently carry to him. Quebec was not important for the English because they had the United States between the two wars. Hardly 2000 English will settle in Quebec in 25 years, which really made English Canada it is their defeat against France with Yorktown which suddenly made Quebec important for English, which it was not front.
To take Quebec made lose the United States with English and was thus a terrible strategic error. William Pitt and William Howe will carry it out too late.
