A plan of the city and harbour of Louisburg, Cape Breton
With the French batteries that defended it, and those of the English, shewing that part of Garbarus Bay in which they landed & the ground on which they encamped during the siege in 1745. The French built the fortress of Louisburg 1720-1740. The action in 1745 was to stop French privateers from Gabarus Bay preying on New England Grand Banks fishermen. The 1748 Treaty of Aix la Chapelle returned the fortress to the French in exchange for Madras.
