French offensive 1757 in Nova Scotia
With the British offensive halted by the French Navy off Louisbourg, the garrison with support from the Mik Maq, Acadian, Canadiens, begin an offencive to hold off the Anglo-American conquest of Canada.
This little game was a "what if" scenario I came up with as I was falling asleep. The French could have come down into western Nova Scotia by sneaking down the coast of the Northumberland strait, then going over the Cobequid mountains of central Nova Scotia.

The 45th Regiment attempt to bring concentrated musketry and the bayonet to drive off the Mik Maq. This time, however, the Amerindian warriors didn't just run off. The British volleys claimed a few warriors but the warriors charged in with tomahawks and war clubs. Only one company was left.
