This day in Canadian Military History...

17 July 1696

French army of 2000 men (regulars, Canadian militia, and Mission Iroquois) are returning to Montreal from attacks on Onondaga villages south of Lake Ontario. Count Frontenac, now in his 74th year, accompanies the force.




17 July 1812

A combined force of British regulars, Canadian militia, and 400 native allies advance on Ft. Michilimackinac (near Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.). The Americans, outnumbered and taken by surprise, relinquish their fort and its contents of arms, supplies, and furs.
