Scenario Description
The French mustered their forces to retake Quebec after its fall. They had a sizeable army assembled for the counter attack and drew up outside of Quebec near Ste-Foy under general Levis. The British under Murray were greatly outnumbered but decided to attack the French outside of Quebec instead of being besieged. Murray hoped that his advantage in artillery would offset his lack of numbers. The British attacked along the French line and a furious battle centered around a windmill on the French left. The British dislodged the French from this position but a counter attack retook the position. The British also attacked along the river by the French right but lost momentum as the fight entered the woods.

Battle Narrative
The Battle of Sainte-Foy, sometimes called the Battle of Quebec, was fought on April 28, 1760 near the British-held town of Quebec in the French province of Canada during the Seven Years' War. It was a victory for the French under the Chevalier de Lévis over the British army under General Murray. The battle was notably bloodier than the Battle of the Plains of Abraham of the previous September, with 833 French casualties to 1,124 British casualties. It was the last French victory in North America.
