Louisbourg Falls to the British

In 1745, Louisbourg, in Nova Scotia, was taken by Sir William Pepperell.  Louisbourg was then returned to the French in return for Madras, India.  However, Britain took Louisbourg again in 1758 to mark the end of French power in North America.

Fortress Louisbourg has been restored and is a marvelous historic site to visit!  Go to its website.  What features are most interesting to you?
