About this Item

Paperback. 176 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.5in. x 0.2in.The Black Watch-the 42nd Foot-are the senior highland regiment in the British Army. In 1757 it was engaged in the Seven Years War as it was fought in North America in the conflict that we term The French and Indian War. They would face one of their most severe trials in combat as the British moved to dislodge the French Army from its strongly held and vital strategic stronghold at Fort Ticonderoga-or Carillon as it was known to the French. This already formidable defensive position was made even more daunting by a wide breastwork of fallen trees, their branches hewn into a tangle of deadly spears. The Black Watch threw themselves upon it with their famous broadswords in an attack that would go down in history and regimental legend. This book covers the build up to the fateful assault and the eventual fall of the fort and the campaigns beyond. Extensive biographical sketches and muster rolls of the companies of the regiment make it an essential tool for both those interested in the period and genealogists alike.

Synopsis:

The Black Watch-the 42nd Foot-are the senior highland regiment in the British Army. In 1757 it was engaged in the Seven Years War as it was fought in North America in the conflict that we term 'The French and Indian War'. They would face one of their most severe trials in combat as the British moved to dislodge the French Army from its strongly held and vital strategic stronghold at Fort Ticonderoga-or Carillon as it was known to the French. This already formidable defensive position was made even more daunting by a wide breastwork of fallen trees, their branches hewn into a tangle of deadly spears. The Black Watch threw themselves upon it with their famous broadswords in an attack that would go down in history and regimental legend. This book covers the build up to the fateful assault and the eventual fall of the fort and the campaigns beyond. Extensive biographical sketches and muster rolls of the companies of the regiment make it an essential tool for both those interested in the period and genealogists alike.
