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

LOD Enterprises rerelease 1/32 Fort William Henry
New release alert from LOD!!
First, please excuse the very natural terrain that Fort William Henry is sitting on in these photos 😉. We were so excited to set it up that the carpet was the closest area that could hold this impressive piece.
The famous fort located in New York and immortalized in Last of the Mohicans is now available from LOD Enterprises. A foam masterpiece from the Barzso catalog, we are thrilled to bring it back for collectors.
The cost is $420.00 plus shipping/handling. For domestic customers, we will predominantly ship via UPS.
Measuring four feet by four feet, this centerpiece can house plenty of British Troops tasked with holding off invaders.
Fort William Henry includes walls, bastions, gun ramps, and the headquarters building (with roof).
Disclaimer: The resin gates will be delivered at a later date. They are on back order right now, but each customer will receive theirs as soon as they arrive from the factory.

La Balme's defeat 1780 (from wikipedia)
LaBalme's Defeat was a short but decisive battle on 5 November 1780 between French colonials in Illinois Country led by French cavalry officer Augustin de La Balme and Miami forces under the leadership of Little Turtle (Mihšihkinaahkwa). The target of LaBalme was British occupied Fort Detroit, but after he sacked the large Miami town of Kekionga, the Miami enacted their revenge. The victory gained notoriety for Little Turtle, who would become one of the most successful Native American military commanders to engage with the United States Army.
Augustin Mottin de la Balme (28 August 1733 - 5 November 1780) was a French cavalry officer who served in Europe during the Seven Years' War and in the United States during the American Revolution. His attempt to capture Fort Detroit in 1780 ended in defeat when he was ambushed by forces under Chief Little Turtle.
