Beginning with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, and the conditions and characteristics of the British-American colonies in Canada in 1750, the author lays the background for the French designs against British expansion. He then proceeds to describe the various clashes between the two European powers in America, including the fight at Great Meadows, Braddock’s Expedition, and Johnson’s futile campaign on Lake George, that led to the formal declaration of war between France and England in May, 1756. The fighting continues through the battles at Louisbourg, Fort William Henry, Ticonde... View more info

This memoir is unique. It is not only a first-person account of the French and Indian War, a scarce commodity, but it is also the work of a common soldier, rarer still. Charles Bonin's story reads as if the reader were sharing wine with the old veteran in a Paris cafe. It was first published in Quebec by Abbe H. R. Casgrain in 1887. In 1941, the Pennsylvania Historical Commission translated Casgrain's work. This edition includes the notes of the previous editions and additional explanations by Mr. Gallup, 1745-1761.254 pages, 5.5x8.5, (1993), 2007, 5.5x8.5, paper, indices, 254 pp, Softcove...

Few Americans have heard of the 1749 French expedition into western Pennsylvania and southern Ohio, known as the Céloron Expedition. The limited interest in this trek has often centered on the lead plates that the French buried along the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers. France was pressured to take action as English traders became dominant in the disputed Ohio territory. The French sent Captain Pierre-Joseph Céloron de Blainville with a large force to show the flag and compel the English traders to leave. This book contains the reports of Céloron, the expedition's commander, and the Jesuit ... View more info

This work brings together information from primary and secondary sources concerning the equipment, daily life, and military service of the French colonial soldier in Canada during the final French and Indian War.

The marine in Canada was the only regular soldier in the colony from 1685 to 1755. His assignment to Canada was for life. After his term of service, he was expected to become a colonist....

This compendium of articles concerns the first two years of the French and Indian War as reported in accounts culled from different newspapers published in Britain's North American colonies and Europe.

As such, the text is infused with all the anxiety and emotion of a nation at wa... View more info

Abercrombie's humiliating defeat at Ticonderoga in 1758 was the last straw for the beleaguered British Army. After three years of attempts to remove the French from their settlements and forts on English territory, the British resolved to replace their inept, politically appointed commanders with reputable generals. The new strategy proposed and adopted was to combine the British regulars, provincial forces and militias into three expeditions to attack the French on three fronts simultaneously, and to take all of Canada, ridding North America of all French interests. One by one the French fort... View more info

Packed full of action and drama: soldiers march, ships sail, guns roar; generals fall, villages burn and scalping knives drip with gore. These unaltered newspaper articles consist of letters, reports and perhaps a few exaggerations; still, they represent the type of information that was flowing from the printing presses to the general public. The battle for Quebec on the Plains of Abraham occurred on September 13, 1759, but news traveled slowly and the citizens in Boston waited in suspense until mid-October for confirmation of that British victory. The newspapers continued to feature eyewitnes... View more info

The French & Indian War ended in victory for the English, and the French were forced to cede all of their forts, settlements and land-holdings east of the Mississippi River, save for New Orleans. This change of hands was followed by a flood of new English settlers. The Indian tribes inhabiting these lands found themselves displaced by the new settlers. Pontiac, sachem of the Ottawa, resolved to resist the incursion and in doing so united all the Indian nations who had been in the French interest against the English. Known as Pontiac’s Conspiracy, this bloody Indian uprising overran and ... View more info

"I awoke shivering in my blankets the next morning, at the site where Rogers and the remnants of his Rangers had passed the cold terrible night, and as dawn appeared I looked over the snow-and-ice-covered lake. I rolled up my blankets, took a drink of brandy in salute to those brave men of both sides, and then headed back towards home. The research was over; it was time to write the book." On the afternoon of March 13, 1758, in the snow-covered Adirondack Mountains near Fort Ticonderoga, the famous Captain Robert Rogers and his New England Rangers lay waiting in ambush.

Out of the beautiful but harsh Canadian wilderness came the rugged leaders who defended New France from Britain as those two countries struggled for control of North America. Unfortunately, the extraordinary accomplishments of these great partisan leaders often become lost in the telling of the larger story of the colonial conflicts. Volume One tells the stories of two great partisans, Jacques LeMoyne de Ste. Hélène and Charles-Michel de Langlade. Ste. Hélène led the grueling winter attack on Schenectady and battled brilliantly in the siege and battle of Quebec in 1690. The other n... View more info
