1725 – The French frigate of war “Le Chameau” sailed from Louisburg, a French stronghold on the eastern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, heading for Quebec carrying a valuable treasure of gold and silver as well as a large number of passengers. As the ship was rounding Cape Lorenbec, Nova Scotia, a squall struck and the ship capsized and sank with almost a complete loss of her crew and passengers. Many of the bodies washed ashore, but nothing of the wreck was ever found until recent times.
