Transcript of The Battle of the Thousand Islands

The Battle of the Thousand Islands:
How did it start?
The Battle of the Thousand Islands started on August 16th, 1760 and ended on August 24th. The French were in the middle of building Fort Lévis. The British were coming up to Saint Lawrence from Oswego and sailed into the area with two snows, the Onandaga and the Mohawk, planning to attack.
During the Battle:
On August 17th, Colonel George Williamson sent out a gig and five row galleys, which were able to attack and cripple the L'Outaouaise. It was repaired by the British and re-launched as the HMS Williamson when the British attacked Fort Lévis on August 19th.
The End of the Battle:
On August 20th, the French managed to sink the British ships. Despite the sinkings, the British still managed to fight against the French, and after finally running out of ammunition on the 24th, Captain Pouchot (the French leader) surrendered the fort. The British renamed it Fort William Augustus and continued on their way to Montreal. 73 British soldiers were lost or wounded, and 275 out of the 300 French men were killed or wounded.
