Death: May 8, 1760

French officer and hero of the Seven Years War in America. Knight of the Royal and Military Order of Saint-Louis. Born on June 30, 1718 in the region of Maine (France). He began as second lieutenant in the Regiment of Lépé on January 1, 1734. On July 28, 1735, he was incorporated in the Queen’s Regiment and on October 11, 1735, he received his commission of lieutenant. He was captain of riflemen on August 28, 1743 and he was promoted to the rank of captain of grenadiers in the Queen’s Regiment on March 16, 1757. He had been wounded in the right leg at the Battle of Dettingen in 1743, at the time of the War of Succession of Austria (1740-1748). He was wounded a second time at the Battle of Plaisance in Italy, in 1746, of a shot which broke his arm. He received the Cross of Saint-Louis on November 11, 1747. He died on May 8 1760 of the wounds he had received a few days earlier at the time of the Battle of Sainte-Foy. He is buried in the cemetery of the General Hospital of Quebec from which a part, called "Cemetery of the Heroes", became in 2001 the Memorial of the Seven Years War.  (bio by: Guy Gagnon)
