                                                                                         French in New France

 French and Indian Wars in the United States the name for a series of conflicts in North America that were part of European wars of succession. While some conflicts Spanish and Dutch forces were involved, found most alliances between the Kingdom of Great Britain, its colonies and Indians on one side and France, its colonies and Indians on the other side instead. The expanding French and British colonies fought for control of the western hinterland territories. At the beginning of the 18th Century, the French were still the dominant force in North America.

 During the wars of the mid 18th Century, the advantage shifted inexorably in favor of the British side. This was due largely to the greater population and higher production capacity of the British colonies in comparison to those of France. While in the fifties of the 18th Century, there were about 1.5 million inhabitants in the British colonies, there were only 65,000 in the French-dominated areas. The French were able to offset by a successful mobilization of Indian alliances that initially.

15-1 march break

 During the colonial wars with Britain at the end of the 17th and early 18 Century the French began building a series of fortifications with which they wanted to keep the British from the Great Lakes region. In this context, they built in 1726, with the permission of the Iroquois near a 1720 scale of the dealer Louis-Thomas Chabert de Joncaire branch at the site of Fort Denonville a stone house with a picket attachment (now French Castle). It served as Fort Niagara as a branch for the lucrative fur trade and site of a small French garrison.

 During the ensuing peace Fort Niagara was the starting point of various companies with which the French attempted to secure their rule in the valley of the Ohio River and a chain of forts from Lake Erie to Fort Duquesne (now Pittsburgh) docked. After the outbreak of the French and Indian War (Seven Years War) in 1754 was a continuation of the main French bases along the Great Lakes. Therefore, there was a push in 1755 British militia troops under General William Shirley, however, was due to numerous delays only to Fort Oswego and had to be canceled. Then, the French began with extensive reinforcements of the fort, surrounded with bastions, was enlarged and provided with capacity for more troops. In the following years, Fort Niagara was the basis for numerous attacks of the Indians allied with the French, the British colonies. Necessary for the safety of the French was the neutrality of the Iroquois. Once there, however, the British Indian superintendent Sir William Johnson managed to end in 1758, to draw it on its side, the British did not hesitate with an attack on Fort Niagara.

15-1 Sensing (soldiers of the Regiment of La Sarre to explore)

 The variety of French forts were manned by small contingents of soldiers of the Compagnie Franche de la Marine. In a recent small series of miniatures were created that show exactly suitable for the soldiers in the North American summer and wilderness clothing and equipment.

 The figures can be painted both as Compagnie Franche de la Marine as well as soldiers of the regular regiments. Moreover, the figures also offer another chance to vary the positions.
