The British attack on the French fort at Louisbourg

Anonymous.

A Plan of the City & Harbour of Louisburg, shewing that part of Gabarus Bay in which the English landed, also their Encampment during the Siege in 1745. A Map of the Island of Cape Breton.
London: Henry & Cave, 1758. 205 x 260mm.

Binding folds flattened.

A plan of Louisbourg, the French fortress in Nova Scotia, showing the camps of the besieging English forces, with an inset map showing Cape Breton with the location of the fort marked.
New England colonists took Louisbourg during the War of the Austrian Succession, but retuned it at the end of the war. This map was published as Britain was launching the second attempt of the Seven Years' War to take the fortress, prior to the more famous assault on Quebec. The attack was successful and most of Louisbourg was demolished, although the British kept a garrison there until 1768.
