This exceptional horn depicts the location of Point Levis or also called Pointe-Lévy as well as many other important points of interest in the decisive Battle of Quebec, also called Battle of the Plains of Abraham. It was a decisive defeat of the French under the marquis de Montcalm by a British force led by Maj. Gen. James Wolfe. The Battle of Quebec marked a turning point in the history of New France and what would eventually become Canada. By defeating and securing the French stronghold at Quebec, the British established a strong presence in New France, foreshadowing the eventual defeat of the French and the beginning of British hegemony in North America.
