434 Ferryboats Chug Far Below Quebec's Citadel and Steep-roofed Chateau Frontenac Troops still man the star-shaped Citadel, foreground, now outmoded for defense. No shot ever has struck its walls. The British built them in 1823-32 at a cost of $35,000,000-a gigantic sum in those days. The Plains of Abraham, scene of Wolfe's victory, reach two miles upriver from the fortress. Levis lies across the stream.
