Jean-Baptiste François de Boschâtel de La Martinic
Birth: Sep. 24, 1723
Death: Apr. 29, 1760

French officer and hero of the Seven Years War in America. Knight of the Royal and Military Order of Saint-Louis. Born on September 24, 1723 in Aurillac (France). He began his military career as a volunteer in the Army on May 6, 1740. Three years later, he became sergeant on November 11, 1743. In 1746, within a few weeks only, he was promoted three times: first to second lieutenant on May 6, then to lieutenant on June 4 and finally to lieutenant of grenadiers on July 1. He was named captain on February 25, 1756 and he was finally promoted assistant medical officer in the Regiment of La Sarre on 25 July 1758, after having valiantly illustrated himselfat the Battle of Carillon. In 1759, General Lévis recommended him for the Cross of Saint-Louis. The Cross was granted to him but he was killed before receiving it on April 29, 1760, 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)
