Long Description:
À l’angle des avenues Taché et Wilfrid-Laurier, est située la tour Martello 2.

Cette construction est un ouvrage avancé par rapport aux fortifications de la ville. Elle fait partie d’un ensemble de quatre tours érigées entre 1808 et 1812, afin de défendre la ville contre une possible invasion américaine. Le mode de construction des tours Martello reprend un modèle utilisé en Angleterre, vers 1804, afin de défendre les côtes contre l’armée française de Napoléon.

Aujourd’hui, la tour Martello 2 reçoit des groupes d’enfants, d’adultes et de retraités. Ces groupes y vivent des activités originales reliées à la thématique de la tour. Dans un décor d’époque, ils ont droit à un conseil de guerre, à l’enrôlement, aux châtiments, aux corvées, aux loisirs, etc. Sans oublier la dégustation du repas du soldat ou de l’officier.

N'hésitez pas à me contacter, XeresDan si vous avez plus de détails sur mes Waymarks.

At the corner of Taché and Wilfrid-Laurier, is located Martello Tower 2.

This construction is an outpost against the fortifications of the city. It is part of a set of four towers erected between 1808 and 1812 to defend the city against a possible U.S. invasion. The method of construction of Martello towers incorporates a model used in England around 1804 to defend the coast against the French army of Napoleon.

Today, the Martello Tower 2 receives groups of children, adults and retirees. These groups live original activities related to the theme of the tower. In a period setting, they are entitled to a council of war, enlistment, punishment, chores, recreation, etc.. Not to mention enjoying the meal of the soldier or the officer.

Feel free to contact me, XeresDan if you have more details on my Waymarks.
