Dieskau Jean Armand Baron De 1701-1777 Of German Descent Served
with distinction under Marshal Saxe. When it was made known to the court
at Versailles that the British had sent two regiments to America under
Braddock, the French decided to fit out an expedition on a larger scale,
and six regiments embarked for Canada under Dieskau, who was given the
rank of general. Immediately after assuming command, prepared to attack
the British and marched at the head of a body of men against Johnson.
Although his plans appear to have been well laid, his position was
betrayed through the action of the Indians. Severely wounded, made
prisoner and well cared for by the British. Taken to England, ruined in
health and fortune. Liberated at the conclusion of the war in 1763; and
returned to France. =Index=: (Wolfe / Montcalm era) Defeated and taken prisoner at Lake
