Fort William Henry
— 1755 - 1757 —This was the flagstaff bastion. During the early days of the bombardment, a French projectile severed a pulley on one of the poles, causing the English flag to fall. One of the carpenters rushed to repair the damage, but as he climbed the pole, had his "head shot off with a ball."
