"Ste. Croix Habitation" by Samuel de Champlain (1613) - "The settlement of Du Gua de Monts and Champlain at Île Sainte-Croix. Just one rather early, harsh winter was enough to persuade them to move this colony to the site of Port-Royal. The insularity, which had initially provided a sense of security, quickly turned into a nightmare when the well froze, the low supply of firewood and food ran out, and scurvy claimed its victims."

(1337 - 1453) Hundred Year War (see photo link for dynamic image) between "French and English monarchies. It was both a dynastic and a feudal struggle as the French kind, Philip VI (r. 1328 -50), sought to absorb the English duchy of Aquitaine... It was fought almost entirely in France, and is popularly remembered as the context of Joan of Arc." (Lindberg, 31)
