Today in History from Fort Ti

At Fort Carillon September 21, 1756
"It has been exceedingly hot for several days. It is [94 degrees] at Carillon today. . .All this country is full of rattlesnakes; they do not do any harm unless one walks on them or on branches which touch them.
I have had a count made these last few days. We are in all 5,300 men at Carillon and the advanced posts."
Journal of Louis Antoine de Bougainville
