Following the capture of Québec in 1760, France dispatched a fleet to rescue its North American colony. On July 8, in Chaleur Bay in Gaspésie, the last naval battle between the French and English took place, sealing the fate of New France. Today, an interpretation centre built in front of the battle site exhibits the vestiges of an 18th-century French frigate recovered during underwater archeological excavations. Many original objects are on display in a setting that recreates life aboard a ship. All aboard!
