Alias The Scot In Quebec

Historic View Of The City Of Quebec

In 1609 when Champlain sailed up the St. Lawrence and into the great lake which bears his name, there was with him a man who won renown as a St. Lawrence pilot — -" Abraham Martin, alias the Scot." He located at Quebec, reared a family there, and immortalized his Christian name by giving it to that famous battle-field made illustrious by Scotsmen — the Plains of Abraham.
