August 25, 1758 Battle of Fort Frontenac

In 1673, French invaders built a log stockade at a site where Fort Frontenac stood. A couple of years later they had a change of plans (most likely more war with Ojibway Soldiers) and decided to build a stone fortified settlement there. Fort Frontenac (it was still a French fortification during 1750s) was located at where present day Kingston, Ontario is situated. It was in Ojibway Territory. Battle of Fort Frontenac was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. Though western outposts, Fort Frontenac as well as Fort Oswego which is 53 miles south of Fort Frontenac, were strategically important to English and French leaders. However, Ojibway Soldiers constantly patrolled that region which is located along Lake Ontario's eastern shores. On Friday August 25, 1758 several thousand Ojibway Soldiers forced their way to that white fort and took it without 110 French Soldiers doing anything. After capturing Fort Frontenac, Ojibway Soldiers immediately realized they had acquired significant amounts of modern day European weapons. Fort Frontenac had a total of 60 cannons, 16 small mortars, and probably significant amounts of gunpowder. In a naval battle out on nearby Lake Ontario, an Ojibway naval force captured 9 French warships, including a large number of cannons, with little or no fighting. In all, they acquired over 800,000 pounds of European goods from Fort Frontenac. As for them 110 French Soldiers, they were either killed or enslaved or sold back to white merchants.
