On March 13th 1758 a small battle took place in the wilderness of north America. The men on the British side were primarily native born settlers from New England led by Robert Rogers, and on the French side native born Canadians and their native Indian allies of New France led by the French partisan Langy. It was to be a clear cut victory for the French and Indians and resulted in the almost total annihilation of the best of the newly formed English Rangers. Only darkness was to save Rogers and the remnants of his force. From the John Jenkins Collection.
