Peter, Thanks for pointing out an error in a link on the Wikipedia entry for Captain Cook.
I suggested the correction to the people who manage this web page, and it has been made.
Do let me know of any more errors about Captain Cook, and I'll be pleased to submit them.

One of your members might want to correct the Wiki article on James Cook. While pursuing his story during Canada's 150th birthday celebrations I noted his
contribution to the pivotal Battle of the Plains of Abraham, 1759 (his charting of the St.Lawrence).
In Wiki we find "Cook joined the British merchant navy as a teenager and joined the Royal Navy in 1755.
He saw action in the Seven Years' War, and subsequently surveyed and mapped
much of the entrance to the Saint Lawrence River during the siege of Quebec. "
The 'siege of Quebec' can be further clicked to a 1775 battle, NOT the siege he contributed to.
Needs correction, yes? Keep up the good work.
