Wolfe's Cove, by Winslow Homer, 1895

L'Anse au Foulon is a small cove about one and one-half miles above Quebec City. It is also referred to by the name Wolfe's Cove. It was at L'Anse au Foulon that the British forces commanded by James Wolfe landed prior to proceeding to the Plains of Abraham where they engaged and defeated the French force commanded by the Marquis de Montcalm, resulting in the occupation of Quebec City and an eventual complete triumph by Great Britain in the North American theatre of the war.
