What a great post, Connor! I really enjoyed reading it, particularly:
1. The detail in which you explained the Seven Years War and the Battle on the Plains of Abraham. After reading your post, I understand the events of battle much more clearly than the CBC documentary. It felt like I was reading a detailed battle guide!
2. how well you covered every side that was involved in the conflict very well. I understood why Britain and France wanted to fight each other in the Seven Years’ War, and what the two commanders’ rationales were for choosing the battle strategy they did. I also like how you connected to our studies of Hamilton last year!
One connection I made to my own independent investigation about John A. Macdonald was during your section about the various factions that lived in Quebec as a result of the battle. Both the French and the British felt somewhat that they were treated unfairly in the terms of surrender documents and the Quebec Act, and John A. Macdonald made sure during his mandate that there were several groups of people that were marginalized and assimilated in Canada.

I found your discussion around the Articles for Capitulation very insightful! You explained the articles in a clear way which made it easier to see how revolutionary they were in conflict resolution at the time. Your emphasis on the individuals who made significant impacts on the Battle of the Plains of Abraham was a cool way to tie the events you explained to each other, as well as to express why all of this is relevant to the development of Canada in the first place.
I connected to your investigation as the victory of the British in the war was a way for Britain to gain control over the land we now call Canada as an act of unity. The construction of the CPR, although it came with many downfalls just as the 7 Year War did, was a way for western and eastern Canadian provinces to connect and be further unified in the creation of modern Canada.

Spectacular post, Connor! The fact that you provided a thorough explanation of about the Seven Years war as well as the Battle of the Plains of Abraham helped me get a better grasp about your independent investigation. I also liked how effectively you connected the context in the significant consequence and historical perspective to the backgrounder you provided earlier in your post.
One connection I can make to the significant consequence of multiculturalism is, the fact that although Chinese labourers were heavily discriminated against during and after the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, it also brought the families of the workers to immigrate to Canada to reunite with their families. Although the head tax that was implemented afterwards also had dire repercussions for the Chinese people, in the end, there was a sense of multiculturalism.

Star: You showed a lot of knowledge on battles such as the Plains of Abraham or when you discussed the Articles of Capitulation by clearly sharing information that I didn’t know about before.
Star: I enjoyed that you focused on almost all the sides of the Seven Years War, allowing the reader to gain an unbiased and fully informed view of the event
Wish: I wish that you included more details about battles other than the Plains of Abraham as although it was a major turning point in the war, there were other almost equally important battles as well.
