Quebec Heritage Tour: New England captives carried to Canada
July 16-24, 2016
Between King Philip's War in 1675-76 and the fall of Quebec in 1759 almost 1,000 captives—soldiers and civilians, men, women, and children—were taken by Natives and French from the New England frontier to Canada. Join NEHGS and Donald Friary—experienced tour leader, historian, and former Executive Director of Historic Deerfield—on a once-in-a-lifetime tour that traces the captives’ route north and recounts the story of their lives and fates.
Whether you are a descendant of the captives, want to learn first hand about Native American culture and New England history, or simply wish to enjoy the magnificent scenery of the St. Lawrence valley in lovely July weather—this will be an unforgettable journey!
Tour highlights include:
- Transportation to and from Boston with narration
- Walking tours of Vieux-Montréal and Quebec
- Dinner cruise on the St. Lawrence
- Visits to Native sites, museums, and other places of historic and cultural significance
- Four nights each in the best Montréal and Quebec hotels
