Chapter Summary

The Bastille is one of the most recognizable representations of the monarchy's power in ancien regime France. To be sent there is a humiliation; to be marked as an enemy of the king. For Daniel Marie Chabert de Joncaire de Clausonne, who resided at the Bastille for three years, it is a chaffing experience in a terrible journey that he has endured since 1760. He served Louis XV in New France (Canada) for almost forty years. Joseph Marin de la Malgue was not imprisoned in body, but his mind was filled with worries as heavy as those of Joncaire Chabert's. Born in New France and having spent his entire life there as a soldier defending France's American claims, it is not easy for him to turn his back on Canada and migrate to France, as a result of the surrender to the British.
