In Quebec City, in what is known as Vieux-Québec, there is a commemorative plaque on a building. It marks the emplacement where one American colonel received a metal souvenir from one of the local riflemen.

Now, to compete with this controversial archeological find, we have the 1/30 scale version by King and Country: The AE091 - Carrying The Queen.
