Champlain Surrenders Quebec

During the 30 Years War, the English captured Quebec for the first time. The French in Canada had not yet made their colony self-sufficient. It still relied on supplies from France. In 1629 those supplies were intercepted, the colony starved, and their leader surrendered.
