Fort Stanwix

Thie siege by a force of British, Loyalists and Indians was abandoned today in 1777. Wiki on the fort here. 
The siege was abandoned after a ruse de guerre when a relief force was exaggerated as being 'as numerous as leaves on a tree' which caused Brant's natives to leave the siege.
More on the forts dimensions and rendering here which would be a good place to start if you wanted to make a model.
