BATTLE ON THE MONONGAHELA 1755
32 Pounder Cannon,
(1 pc) us$32
At Fort William Henry,
the British had two 32-pounders.
Both these 32-pounders burst from over firing during the siege.
The 32-pounders at Fort William Henry beat off an attack
by the French trying a "silent" capture" of the fort in March 1757.
With such heavy guns,
we know the gun carriage was not a field gun carriage or even a siege gun carriage,
but a ships gun/garrison carriage.
These were easy enough to obtain off British naval vessels.
During the Siege of Louisbourg,
the British navy loaned at least four 32-pounders for use with Wolfe's siege batteries.
On July 11, 1759,
the British Army opened two batteries at Point aux Peres opposite to Quebec.
One consisted of six 32-pounders and other was formed of five 13-inch mortars.
During the Siege of Quebec,
the British Army fired 18,000 rounds from their 32-pounder batteries.
