  • Web fortress.cbu.ca/islandbattery/
 
  •  Island Battery
    • It was claimed by the English who attacked the Island Battery in 1745 that the French regarded it as the palladium of Louisbourg. No doubt what was meant, in naval speak, was that it was regarded as the defensive bulwark of its inner harbour. Twice attacked, twice silenced, loved or hated, it represented in a startling microcosm all that Louisbourg itself as a military might was and was not. Here too loomed the battle between what was built and what was proposed. What was built was battered twice and finally knocked down beyond any use. What was proposed would have met the same fate - argumentatively just as quickly - though at a far greater financial cost.

      • The French came to Louisbourg in 1713, at the end of the War of the Spanish Succession, when they had to surrender title to their holdings in Newfoundland and on mainland Nova Scotia. Initially Louisbourg was a base from which the French exploited North America's lucrative cod fishery. In 1745, after three decades of peace and prosperity, a combined British and New England force attacked and captured Louisbourg. An occupying army took over the town, and its residents were removed to France. Three years later Britain returned Cape Breton to France through a treaty. In 1758 Britain took Louisbourg a second time, and in 1760 demolished much of the fortifications.
