This map shows the path taken by some of the expeditions sent from New France against English colonies in North America. Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville et d’Ardillières was a young man on his first campaign in 1686 when Pierre de Troyes led 100 men overland to Hudson Bay. By 1696, d'Iberville was a famous commander in his own right. In that year he returned to Hudson Bay and also captured English settlements in Maine and Newfoundland.
