The plaque reads:

"Marie Magdeleine de Verchères (Première 'Girl scout' en Canada)

Battons-nous jusqu’à la mort : nous combattons pour notre patrie et pour la religion. Souvenez-vous des leçons que mon père vous a si souvent données que des gentils hommes ne sont nés que pour verser leur sang pour le service de dieu et du roi.

Paroles adressées à ses deux jeune frères lors de la défense du Fort de Verchères le 22 octobre 1696"
