1757

From The Story of Dartmouth, by Dr. John P. Martin:

From Volume I of Knox History Journal we learned by a perusal of the diary of Major Robert Rogers that his famous Rogers’ Rangers were quartered at Dartmouth for a time during the 7-Years’ War. According to the record they had been stationed at Fort William Henry, and proceeded from there to the port of New York:

June 1757—. . . sailed with 100 vessels bound to Halifax, where we soon arrived and according to orders, I encamped on the Dartmouth side of the harbour. . . .

The Rangers were here employed in various services. . .
