The Wolfe–Montcalm Monument is in Governors' Garden beside the Château Frontenac, Quebec. The obelisk is the oldest monument in Quebec City and the second oldest war monument in Canada (1827) (the first being Nelson's Column, Montreal, 1809). The mason who made the monument was John Phillips and the architect was Captain John Crawford Young of the 79th (Cameron) Highlanders. The monument commemorates the gallantry of the two generals, James Wolfe and Louis-Joseph de Montcalm, who fought (and both died) in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham; it is one of very few monuments to the victor and the defeated in the same battle. The monument was unveiled in 1828 by Governor Dalhousie. The translation of the Latin on the monument, written by John Charlton Fisher reads 'Their courage gave them a common death, history a common fame, posterity a common memorial.'

WOLFE, JAMES (1727-1759), British general, the hero ofQuebec, was born at Westerham in Kent on the 2nd of January1727. At an early age he accompanied his father, Colonel(afterwards Lieutenant-General) Edward Wolfe, one ofMarlborough's veterans, to the Carthagena expedition, and in 1741his ardent desire for a military career was gratified by his appointmentto an ensigncy. At the age of fifteen he proceeded withthe 12th Foot (now Suffolk Regiment) to the Rhine Campaign,and at Dettingen he distinguished himself so much as actingadjutant that he was made lieutenant. In 1744 he received acompany in Barrel's regiment (now the 4th King's Own). Inthe Scottish rising of the “Forty-five” he was employed as abrigade-major. He was present at Hawley's defeat at Falkirk,and at Culloden. With his old regiment, the 12th, Wolfeserved in the Flanders campaigns of the duke of Cumberland,and at Val (Lauffeld) won by his valour the commendation ofthe duke. Promotion followed in 1749 to a majority, and in1750 to the lieutenant-colonelcy of the 20th, with which he servedin Scotland. Some years later he spent six months in Paris.When war broke out afresh in 1757 he served as a staff officer inthe unfortunate Rochefort expedition, but his prospects werenot affected by the failure, for had his advice been taken theresult might well have been different. Next year he was sent toN. America as a brigadier-general in the Louisburg expeditionunder Amherst and Boscawen. The landing was effected inthe face of strenuous opposition, Wolfe leading the foremosttroops. On the 27th of July the place surrendered after anobstinate defence; during the siege Wolfe had had charge ofa most important section of the attack, and on his lines thefiercest fighting took place. Soon afterwards he returned toEngland to recruit his shattered health, but on learning thatPitt desired him to continue in America he at once offered toreturn. It was now that the famous expedition against Quebecwas decided upon, Wolfe to be in command, with the local rankof major-general. In a brief holiday before his departure he metat Bath Miss Lowther, to whom he became engaged. Very shortlyafterwards he sailed, and on the 1st of June 1759 the Quebecexpedition sailed from Louisburg (see Quebec). After wearisomeand disheartening failures, embittered by the pain of an internaldisease, Wolfe crowned his work by the decisive victory on thePlains of Abraham (13th of September 1759) by which the Frenchpermanently lost Quebec. Twice wounded earlier in the fight,he had refused to leave the field, and a third bullet passing throughhis lungs inflicted a mortal injury. While he was lying in a swoonsome one near him exclaimed, “They run; see how they run!” “Who run?” demanded Wolfe, as one roused from sleep. “Theenemy,” was the answer; “they give way everywhere.” Wolferallied for a moment, gave a last order for cutting off the retreat,and murmuring, “Now God be praised, I will die in peace,”breathed his last. On the battle-ground a tall column bears thewords, “Here died Wolfe victorious on the 13th of September1759.” In the governor's garden, in Quebec, there is also amonument to the memory of Wolfe and his gallant opponentMontcalm, who survived him only a few hours, with the inscription“Wolfe and Montcalm. Mortem virtus communem, famamhistoria, monumentum posteritas dedit.' In Westminster Abbeya public memorial to Wolfe was unveiled on the 4th of October1773.
