Louisbourg Portraits: Life in an Eighteenth-Century Garrison Town
|When the fortress of
Louisbourg surrendered to the English in 1758, its archives survived intact.
From these records, diaries, letters, and charts of the period, author
Christopher Moore has pieced together the lives of five people who knew the
French colonial town at its peak. In Louisbourg Portraits, they are all
brought to life once again - after two hundred and fifty years.
First published in 1982, this bestselling book of fascinating true stories represents "social history as it should be written." (Desmond Morton)
Written by Christopher Moore. Published by McClelland & Stewart, 2000.
