Ticonderoga

At Carillon July 1, 1758 "The Marquis de Montcalm went this morning with MM. de Pontleroy, Desandrouins, Jacquau, and de Hébécourt to reconnoiter the surroundings of Fort Carillon in order to select a battlefield and the place for an entrenched camp. We lack man power, and perhaps time is also lacking. Our situation is critical. Action and audacity are our sole resources." Journal of Louis Antoine de Bouganville
