Founded by Antoine de la Motte Cadillac (q.v.) in 1701. The
fort remained under Cadillac's command until 1710. A census taken that
year shows six settlers cultivating the land, and twenty-nine soldiers,
traders, etc., occupying houses within the fort. De la Forest succeeded
Cadillac at the fort, 1710. Fort surrendered to the British, 1760.
Pontiac laid siege to the fort, 1763, but failed to capture it.
Transferred to United States, 1796. Captured by Brock, in War of 1812;
restored by treaty of Ghent. =Index=: (John Graves Simcoe era) The most important of western
