August 16-24, 1760 Battle of the Thousand Islands

In mid August of 1760, a large military force of English and French soldiers (they numbered close to 11,000) and a few of their idiotic Indian allies, met and battled a large force of brave Ojibway Soldiers near what is now Ogdensburg, New York which is 106 miles southwest of Montreal. Battle of the Thousand Islands was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. English and French had forced their way into that region then commenced to build another fortification they named Fort Levis. However, their actions were soon learned of by Ojibways of that region and they soon responded to that great threat. English and French chose that location to build a fort because it offered them a better opportunity to sail Saint Lawrence River to Montreal, to attempt to bring a siege Ojibway Soldiers held over Montreal. Ojibway Soldiers dominated St. Lawrence River up to Montreal at that time. After whites had commenced building Fort Levis, they were to be joined by those remaining English and French soldiers who were a part of their military force.

On Saturday August 16, 1760 battles commenced (both on water and on land) and raged on for several days. On August 19, 1760 brave Ojibway Soldiers finally attacked Fort Levis which was still being constructed. However, a large force of English and French Soldiers took advantage of their situation. By August 24, 1760 brave Ojibway Soldiers lifted their siege. They did not like siege warfare. After Battle of the Thousand Islands, English and French Soldiers in that Fort Levis region, set sail for Montreal where they were to meet up with two other large groups of English Soldiers who had been ordered to end that siege Montreal was enduring. One group came by way of Quebec City, while that other group came by way of Lake Champlain. That group that had left Fort Levis were harassed along their trek to Montreal and endured a great many more casualties. Total white casualties were 373 killed and wounded. While in route to Montreal, they endured another 336 killed. French had willingly lost their North American colony. In fact, they encouraged them English to take control of their colony, as long as French People were allowed to keep their French identity and French language alive. A minor event occurred at Battle of Restigouche which involved around only 400 French Soldiers (they were really Ojibway) supposedly coming from France, who supposedly were trying to rescue their colony, which is a bunch of bull. So called Battle of Restigouche occurred on Thursday July 3, 1760 and lasted to July 8, 1760. It was fought near Quebec-New Brunswick border. On Monday September 8, 1760 Anishinabek lifted their siege over Montreal but that war was not over with. Then a combined English-French force finally forced Ojibways to surrender after Battle of Signal Hill which was fought on Wednesday September 15, 1762, at Newfoundland. English forcefully took St. Johns from a few Anishinabe Soldiers stationed there.

Though English and French had brought Montreal and Quebec City sieges to an end, they did not fully control that region between Albany, New York, and Montreal and Quebec City. East of Lake Champlain, English had obviously took control of that region to Atlantic Ocean. By 1770, white population in Vermont had grown from nothing to 10,000, while a white population of Maine had grown from almost nothing to over 31,000. White population in New Hampshire had grown to over 62,000 by 1770, and a white population in old French Acadia (New Brunswick and Nova Scotia) had risen significantly as well.
