(British)After the French left, the British Fort was built by Major Rodgers in 1760 on the site of the old French Fort. It had a different configuration consisting of a stockade enclosure with a blockhouse, the second story of which extended all around, located in the northwest corner of the stockade. It was attacked in June of 1763 during Pontiac's Rebellion and fell after three days of spirited defense by Ensign Christie when the shingle roof of the Blockhouse was set afire. The British never rebuilt the fort.
