Title: The attack on Fort William Henry 1757
Post by: marco_snijder on January 22, 2010, 07:53:33 pm
Here something new from my 'studio':

"The attack on Fort William Henry in 1757"

The fort I still need to finish using wooden sticks as loggs glued on the walls.....

The fortress only features one of the four bastions, the other three or so I will make somewhere in the future?!

Thank you, Marco!

I have visited the replica of Fort William Henry on Lake George and your diorama really captures the "feel" of upstate New York and the period of the French and Indian War (Seven Years War).

As everyone may already know, this was the scene of an Indian massacre of the unarmed British troops after they had surrendered to the French.

The French General the Marquis de Montcalm had to dispatch French troops to protect the defeated English soldiers from the Indians as they marched to the British Fort Edward.

Thanks again for a delightful glimpse of a very interesting period of history.

All the best,
Richard
