Central America[edit]

This page is interesting but it needs more information on Central America as it has none on this part of the country at all and i as a student looking for information would like in formation on central america. Thank u

You have probably done your homework by now so I may be a bit late in suggesting this but if you are still interested, you might get a little from Mexico (RJP 12:02, 14 February 2006 (UTC))

Unsouced statements[edit]

I removed the following because it is incorrect: However, France did not have the navy to re-supply its North American holdings – the blockade of the French Empire was a key part of British strategy against Napoleon – and because France did not want its possessions to fall into the hands of the British, Napoleon sold this colonial Louisiana to the United States, a sale referred to as the Louisiana Purchase.

"blockade of the French Empire" ? - In 1803 Napoleon began preparations to invade England. After Napoleon's defeat at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, he enforced his Continental System and his Berlin Decree of 1806 followed by the Milan Decree in 1807 was a blockade of England meant to cripple the British economy and starve them into easy submission.

I have assessed this article as Start Class, as it contains a lot of detail and organization, but not enough referencing and in-line citations. I have assessed this article as mid importance, as it plays a strong role in the understanding of the history of Canada. Cheers, CP 03:36, 31 October 2007 (UTC)


I added the correct link for Francis 1, king of France, the previous link was sending the reader to another Francis 1, but it was for the duke of Laurraine, not for the king of France, I hope this helps. Jean-Pierre Boucher (talk) 15:23, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Good catch. Rich Farmbrough, 00:22, 10 February 2011 (UTC).

Need much more on the Colonization of New France / Quebec[edit]

This article has much detail on many far flung attempts by France in the North and Central America, but seriously short changes colonization of Quebec, the single most important and extensive colonization in the New World. I suggest adding a section covering New France / Quebec. Tony (talk) 16:52, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
