A two day winter raid on Fort William Henry by approximately 1,600 French forces and their Native American allies under Francois Pierre de Rigaud de Vaudreuil.

British sentries heard tapping which was advance troops testing the ice. The fort began firing the canon which forced the French off the ice.The British would not surrender, continuing the gunfire and cannon fire on the French.

Vaudreuil ordered the out buildings, a sawmill, boats and provisions be set on fire and then set out for home.
