The Fighting Governor

13 Nov

On November 13, 1689, the Iroquois massacred the settlement of La Chesnaye, 20 miles from Fort Ville-Marie (Montreal).  Twenty people died.

There are many sites covering this unfortunate event. A few of my favourites are:


Roots Web by Wayne Jones.


CBC’s Lachine Massacre.


R.D. Garneau’s Quebec 1670 – 1689 Quebec Culture.


Also interesting is found at Project Gutenberg in the book, The Fighting Governor a chronicle of Frontenac.
