1744 - A Calendar of Events

The following calendar of events focuses on the summer of 1744, hence the greatest detail is to be found on the dates falling within the period I June to 30 September. Events before and after that period are mentioned only if they were considered to have special significance for the inhabitants of Louisbourg. There were also many events of considerable importance, such as the arrival of captured British vessels in port, the precise dates of which are unknown and therefore not listed. Finally, the presence of the British prisoners in town is not an "event" but should be kept in mind as an extremely important factor of life in Louisbourg throughout that summer.
