Fort Ligonier

"Brothers Malcolm MacWilliam
and Davey Gunn reminisce on the
Battle of Ligonier and aftermath."

Fort Ligonier's construction was started in the fall of 1758 as a rear fortification for the British push to take Fort Duquesne (Pittsburgh). Called the "Fort at Loyalhanna" until mid-November when it first appears in Col. Bouquet's accounts as Fort Ligonier, the stockade has an inner wall which surrounds two main storehouses, outer walls with ravelin, abatis, fascine walls, entrenchments, a formidable stockade, although small, and defended by several cannon and coehorns (mortars). The reenactment of the October 12, 1758 battle between the French and Indians and the British troops (combination of the 77th Reg't of Foot, 60th Royal Americans, and provincial troops) draws hundreds of public as reenactors of French, British, provincials, and Native Americans camp in and around the recreated fort on the weekend closest to the actual date of the battle. The 77th Reg't of Foot, Montgomery's Highlanders, Grenadier Company comes out in full force for this event, and the characters of the MacWilliam Chronicles are all present, including Cpl. MacWilliam, Pvt. Davey Gunn, and their cousin, Seamus MacWilliam, who mustered in with the provincials.                                                                            ... Many Flags
