Historical notes: 
This map illustrates events of the French and Indian Wars. In 1757 the Marquis de Montcalm marched a sizable force from Fort Carillon (renamed Fort Ticonderoga when captured by the British in 1759) and laid siege to English forces at Fort William Henry. The English eventually were forced to surrender because reinforcements did not arrive. The ensuing Fort William Henry massacre was greatly exaggerated in the press and British troops were extremely reluctant to surrender to the French thereafter.
