Historian Francis Parkman was referring to The Battle of Quebec when he wrote: "Measured by the numbers engaged, it was but a heavy skirmish; measured by results, it was one of the great battles of the world.? The Battle of Quebec, fought on the rainy morning of September 13, 1759, pitted the armies of England and France in a clash outside the walls of Quebec City and altered the balance of power of an entire continent. By the time the rain had washed away the blood, Quebec had surrendered to the British. Four years later, the Treaty of Paris gave England sole dominion over most of the land that Quebec City had governed, from Cape Breton Island in the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Mississippi River.
