just reading Walter Bornemans ‘The French and Indian war. It’s a good retelling if the war, and brings in world wide and political aspects of the war we in America don’t often think about. One of the things the book does mention a lot is the sad state of French larders. Not only was the French out numbered but them they had were under fed. Why? Between Indian crops and European crops that did well in Canada or the Mississippi Valley there was plenty to grow, and plenty of land to grow it on. The French had lots of experience as farmers, French cropland goes way back before it was France and before it was Long Haired Gaul. Every book on the war I’ve ever read talked about the hungry French. For sure they invested in trade more then colonization. The English moved food around the colonies, rice up the coast, wheat to Europe. But in General most people ate food raise within a few days walk from their front door..... so why couldn’t Quebec feed itself or Detroit ect. I don’t doubt but that a full belly would have ‘devoured’Wolfe.
