New France

I recently read an article by Jacques Mathieu about the creation of New France.

This article outlines the development of New France after the exploration journeys of Christopher Columbus, John Cabot and the Corte-Real brothers. These journeys lead to a follow up by Jacque Cartier for the country of France by placing a cross on the shores of the Gaspe peninsula in 1534 in the name of the King of France.
