Cimetière du Fort de Chambly
Here rest in the peace of our Lord the mortal remains of men, who underneath the walls of the old fort, gave their lives for their country. “How sleep the Brave, who sink to rest by all their Country’s wishes blest!”
Ici dorment dans la paix du Seigneur, ceux qui, sous les murs du vieux Fort, ont donné leur vie pour la patrie. “Ceux qui pieusement sont morts pour la patrie, ont droit qu’à leurs cercueils, le peuple vienne et prie.”
