King George's War 1740's North America Part 1

This is another campaign which I plan on gamming. Most of the actions were small scale battles, perfect for wargamming.

NH Battn

May 1746
300 Abenakis go to Nova Scotia, skirmish with Goreham’s Rangers
August 1746: 1800 Quebec milice join up with Abenakis for Duc D’Anville’s expedition which has 11,000 soldiers, sailors. This would be an interesting campaign to fight as the original foundered due to storms and sickness. Possibility of recapturing Louisbourg, besieging Annapolis Royal, attack on Boston.
French Forces:  Regt. Ponthieu
               Milice Royale du Saumur
               Milice Royale du Fontenay-le-Comte
