On April 10, 1734, Montreal was on fire. The city was devastated and the cause was deemed to be arson. An enslaved woman was charged, tortured, and hung for the crime—a crime she might not have committed. This is the story of Marie-Josèphe-Angélique, from one of the darkest chapters of Canadian history.
