Our colonies are far outnumbered compared to the force in New France. I need to do something. I want to… no, I WILL go down in history as the greatest British Monarch of all time! Ha, Ha, Ha!
King George III! We have come to the decision of capturing Fort Louisbourg, and Fort Quebec, in order to conquer New France, as you asked, Your Highness.
Finally I can put the most powerful navy in all of Europe to use!
The list that contains two items and the plan to control Fort Louisbourg and Quebec that King George came up with by himself and maybe a little help by some advisors that was created in King George's palace and written with a fancy quill in cursive on a piece of parchment that will eventually be burned and die but it is now alive and in good shape right now but it will let the king control those parts of Canada and control both of those forts 1. Capture Louisbourg 2. Capture Quebec
2 weeks, later June 28, 1745
King George! The siege of Louisbourg was successful - the fort is now under the command of General Amherst!
Great! Phase 1 of the plan has been completed. We have successfully blocked off the passage, now Quebec will have no way to receive food or weapons by boat!
Have you heard about the new guy?
What new guy?
His name is James Wolfe and he’s a little on the crazy side…
