On October 3, 1759, a company of nearly 120 men under the command of Major Robert Rogers attacked an Indian Village on the St. Francis River between Montreal and Quebec, killing most of the occupants and looting and burning the Jesuit Mission that supported the town. The loot taken from the church included gold candlesticks, coins, a gold calf, and a ten pound silver statuette of the Madonna holding the baby Jesus.
This was done during the French-Indian War, and as the raiding party escaped southward the French and their Indian allies the Abenaki were in hot pursuit of Rogers Rangers, who had hundreds of hard miles to cross and no food or supplies to support them. the Ranger party split up, many died, and much of the stolen treasure, including the Madonna, was lost in the New England wilderness. The historical value of the Silver Madonna, which has never been found- priceless. This is the story.
