This image on a display panel shows naval action during the French and Indian War.
One of the artifacts here is a mortar that was part of the defenses at the French fortress at Louisbourg.
Video screens on either side of the pathway show re-enactors in British and French uniform at the Battle of the Plains of Abraham.
A few years after the end of the French and Indian War came the American Revolution, which had a big impact on Canada. In its wake would come English speaking Loyalists moving north to start new lives, but Canada would also be invaded by Continental forces. One of the American commanders involved in the 1775 invasion of Quebec would later become infamous in history. His name was Benedict Arnold.
A display case includes artifacts dating back to the Revolution.
One of the repeated features throughout the War Museum is profiling everyday people, not just the commanding generals. Such is the case here.
The War of 1812 would erupt decades later, with the Americans seeking to drive the British out of North America. The British and Canadians took exception to that. Among the artifacts here is a portrait of a Mohawk war chief, John Norton, and some of the weaponry typical of a First Nations warrior of the period.
