The French Indian War
The middle photo is of the Tower at Fort William Henry, one of the forts where battles took place during the French and Indian Wars, and the photos on the left and right of the tower, are of Fort Ticonderoga in the late 1800s before the reconstruction. This fortress changed hands many times in the course of its useful life. It was blown up by the French, abandoned by the British and allowed to molder away to ruin by the Americans. The magnificent (and sometimes controversial) reconstruction we now know as Ticonderoga is a reconstruction created during the early years of the 20th Century.
