Battle of Fort Carillon, Ticonderoga

The British suffered a string of defeats at the hands of the French and their native allies in the opening phases of the French and Indian War, of which the Battle of Carillon was one. Commanding the British was General James Abercrombie, who displayed breath-taking military incompetence in his assault of the fort. The defending General Montcalm had been forced to hastily prepare his position, leaving key areas undefended by soldiers or earthworks. Abercrombie ignored these possible avenues of attack in favor of an ill-fated frontal assault. By the time it was over, the Battle of Carillon left 2,000 British soldiers dead and the fort in French hands.
