Fort William Henry

— 1755 - 1757 —

This bastion suffered the heaviest damage from Montcalm's artillery. Here a howitzer shell landed on an ammunition box killing or wounding 16, including a "provincial Officer who was never heard of but part of his coat was found." Each night the army advanced until they were firing from a distance of 150 yards in the general area of the Fort William Henry Hotel complex.
