A fort built by the French in 1750-1751, on Chignecto Bay,

three miles from the British Fort Lawrence. A little tidal stream, the

Missaguash, ran between--nominally marking the dividing line between

British and French territory. The fort was captured by the British under

Monckton, in 1755, and renamed Fort Cumberland. =Bib.=: Parkman,
