Dollard Des Ormeaux Adam
A young officer of the garrison at
Montreal, who saved Montreal and the colony from probable destruction by
the Iroquois, in 1660. With sixteen companions and a few Indian allies,
he intercepted the Iroquois at the Long Sault Rapids, on the Ottawa, and
with a heroism seldom equalled in the world's history, this little band
gave their lives for their country's sake. The Iroquois, discouraged by
such unexpected resistance, abandoned the projected raid on the colony.
