Long Description:
Ce monument s’élève dans le petit parc Montcalm à quelques centaines de pas de l’endroit où le héros fut blessé à mort le 13 septembre 1759, en même temps que Wolfe. Il fut dévoilé le 16 octobre 1911. C’est une réplique exacte du monument Montcalm de Vestric-Candiac, près de Nimes en France, où le Marquis de Montcalm vit le jour en 1712. La statue en bronze est l’œuvre de l’artiste sculpteur Léopold Morice, et le piédestal en granite rouge clair est dû à l’architecte Paul Chabert. La statue représente Montcalm blessé mortellement, soutenu de la main droite par un ange aux longues ailes qui s’apprête à couronner le héros. La seule inscription gravée sur le monument est:

À MONTCALM, LA FRANCE, LE CANADA
