De Langis

Somewhat less famous than Robert Rogers is this man who was one of New France's most successful scouts. Referred to by Rogers as 'Longee'. His rank was ensign and he led many warparties around the Lake George area. Sadly drowned in a canoe accident during the defence of Montreal. Image is by Francis Back of Compagnies Franches de la Marine in campaign kit.
