Battle of the Restigouche National Historic Site
For 200 years, the wreck of the Machault, a 26-gun military sailing vessel charged with protecting merchant vessels from the British, has remained under water. At the Battle of Restigouche National Historic Site, it is now possible to admire the ship’s remains and to relive the last naval battle between France and Great Britain for possession of North American territory. It's an extraordinary journey that will take you all the way back to 1760!
