Details of the event here
From the wiki
Fort Toulouse was a stockade built by the French in
1717. It was replaced by a better-built fort of the same name in 1735, a bit further back from river erosion. Fort Toulouse served as a trading post with the Creek Indians until the end of the French & Indian War in 1763. With the French loss of that conflict, the French Garrison spiked their cannons and left for both New Orleans and a return to France. The British victors chose not to occupy the Fort, and it eventually collapsed into decay.

 There seems to be some ignorance about this subject. The wiki will explain. The book is excellent and ideal if you want more.
