English forts in North America in 1699
(Catalogue ref: CO 700 New Hampshire 3)
In the 1690s the French and the English were bitter rivals for lands in North America. Each side also allied with local Native American tribes as well.
Forts like this one were important for the British in defending the lands that they held. Troops were based in these forts and could go out on patrol.
The forts were also important trading points where goods could be traded with the Native Americans. The most important goods were furs.
