July 6-8, 1758 Battle of Fort Carillon

Before French constructed Fort Carillion during early stages of their so called French and Indian War, they had constructed an earlier fort near Lake Champlains southern shores, in 1734. Name of that French fort was Fort Frederic. In some places on that fortified French forts position, walls were 12 feet thick and stood up to 40 feet high. It was built strong in case of an Ojibway assault, which them French greatly dreaded. Battle of Fort Carillon was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. Ticonderoga, New York is 2 miles west of Fort Carillon. For over 200 years, them invading whites had been attempting to bring that region around Lake Champlain under their control. Lake Champlain region was strategically important to them invading whites because that region offered whites a possible war free danger zone to Saint Lawrence River, which led to them Great Lakes. More importantly, if whites brought Lake Champlains region fully under their control, it meant they could prevent Ojibway Soldiers from having free access to that region just east of Lake Champlain. However, a large Anishinabe population (Abenakis and Algonquin’s) continued to live in that region. They were very determined to prevent them whites from gaining control of that region. From Lake Champlain region, Ojibway Soldiers had access to land east of Lake Champlain. In fact, to Atlantic Coastline of Nova Scotia. Both English and French were cooperating to bring Lake Champlain region under their control. From Thursday July 6, 1758 through Saturday July 8, 1758, a large force of English and French Soldiers numbering just under 20,000 (about 16,000 were English) attempted to forcefully bring Lake Champlain region under their control and failed. A large force of brave Ojibway Soldiers, met their white enemies first on July 6, 1758 and prevented them from dominating them. On July 8, 1758, a full out battle for Fort Carillon was fought. Ojibway Soldiers once again battled them invading whites and prevailed. White casualties were 655 killed and another 1,629 wounded. Around 77 white soldiers were listed as MIA, which probably means they were captured by Ojibways then later on either killed or enslaved or they deserted. Over one year later, English Soldiers returned once again to Fort Carillon to battle Ojibway Soldiers for control of that region.
