History of Quebec in French newspapers

On September 13, to mark the anniversary of the fall of Québec in 1759, Le Devoir published a survey of how the French defeat was reported in French newspapers of 1759.  Late in 1759, in fact. Detailed accounts only began to appear in Paris on the first of December.  

It's the start of a series in cooperation with the Bibliothèque Nationale, to present documents of French views on Québec through the centuries.
