Montcalm (Candiac, near Nîmes, 1712)
French general, noteworthy for his taking command of the French forces in North America during King Louis War, in 1756.
Tensions were strong between him and the governor of New France, Vaudreuil. However, they managed to co-operate enough to defend Canada, this due in particular to Lévis, as Michel Pumplison, his biographer, argues.
Died in his estate of Candiac, without particular consideration for his services in America, in 1766.
