Caption: Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, Comte de Bougainville (1729-1811)
When a young officer, Bougainville came to Canada as one of General Montcalm’s Aides de camp and rapidly rose to field rank. After the war, he gained lasting fame as one of the early explorers of the south Pacific during 1766-1769. This print shows him later in life.
