In 1719, France began construction on a fortified town located on Cape Breton Island in Canada, naming the settlement Louisbourg. The sheer volume of the French investment in construction and a growing economy based almost entirely on the Grand Banks fishery, coupled with the influx of Acadians living in the British colony now named Nova Scotia, soon saw the town of Louisbourg become a thriving community. Louisbourg soon became an important hub for commerce between France, New France, and French colonies in the West Indies. The town also became the base of a major fishery. The fortress was attacked in two major sieges: the Siege of Louisbourg (1745) and the Siege of Louisbourg (1758). This fantastic book recounts the fascinating historical events tied to the Louisberg settlement and subsequent warfare – Canada and the French vs. New England and the British Navy!
