June 8 - July 26, 1758 Siege of Louisburg

Probably long in planning, whites finally made their moves to attempt to conquer land situated just south of Quebec City, to east of Lake Champlain, to Nova Scotias Atlantic Coastline. Included in that region are present States of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and parts of eastern Quebec. Siege of Louisburg was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. Louisburg is located along Nova Scotias eastern Atlantic Coastline. Between Thursday June 8, 1758 and Wednesday July 26, 1758, that battle raged on. A force of over 26,000 English Soldiers sailed to French Fortress of Louisburg, which was being laid siege to by a large force of Ojibway Soldiers who continued to control that region during those times. Though their soldiers were far fewer, Ojibway military commanders had no choice but to fight. Ojibway Soldiers were holding Quebec in a siege. A force of over 7,000 French soldiers were stationed at Fort Louisburgh. On June 8, 1758, English Soldiers made their approach to Louisburg, to attempt to bolster up numbers of white soldiers stationed in that region or prevent Ojibway Soldiers from subduing Quebec. They then made their land fall. For seven weeks, a battle for control of that eastern section of Ojibway Territory, raged on. Finally, on July 26, 1758 Ojibway commanders ordered their brave soldiers to lift their siege then departed from Louisburg. This allowed whites to bring Atlantic coast from southern Maine to Nova Scotia, fully under white control. White casualties during that long siege were 274 killed and 658 wounded. This military engagement was probably why that so called French and Indian war was fought. Though brave Ojibway Soldiers fought to defend their beloved land, odds were against them. Siege of Louisburg was a turning point in this war. It allowed larger numbers of white soldiers to reinforce Quebec and northern New England.
