Bougainville Louis Antoine Comte De 1729-1811 Born In Paris
Educated for his father's profession of notary; and soon obtained
recognition as an advocate in the Parliament of Paris. As a student
displayed a remarkable talent for mathematics, and at the age of
twenty-two wrote the first volume of a treatise on the Integral
Calculus. His mathematical work recognized by the Royal Society in
electing him to a fellowship. Joined the army in 1755, and the next year
came to Canada as Montcalm's aide-de-camp. Played an important part in
the siege of Quebec, and wrote an elaborate journal of the campaign,
much of which appears to have been incorporated in Montcalm's Journal,
published by Abbe Casgrain. Returned to France in 1760, and after
serving in Germany, joined the navy. From 1766 to 1769 made a voyage
around the world; served in the West Indies during the Revolutionary
War, and commanded the van of the French fleet in the action off
Chesapeake Bay. Retired from active service, 1790; nominated by Napoleon
to the Senate, and raised to the nobility. =Index=: (Wolfe / Montcalm era) Aide-de-camp to
