The French and Indian War was part of the larger conflict between Europe’s great powers known as the Seven Years’ War, and involved British and French colonies and their Native allies. Gloucester had a stake in the war, as the French had been disruptive to fishing on the Grand Banks. The Gloucester Militia took part, including a company led by Captain Jonathan Fellows that participated in the campaign against Crown Point on Lake Champlain.
