PRESENTED BY LOCAL HISTORIAN
JOSEPH ROBERTACCIO

On a cold & snowy March morning in 1756 a

strong French raiding party captured & destroyed

a small British Fort on the Oneida Carry (present day Rome, NY).

Come & learn how a careful review of a

French Intelligence Report, the Crown (British) Map collection

of Maps & Modern Geographic Information

systems & Aerial Photography solve the riddle

of where this fort was.

Beyond this, learn how what should have been an

insignificant engagement on the New York Frontier

put into motion an unforeseen chain of events

which will haunt both England & France

for the next 40 years.
