I always wondered why "The French and Indian War" game doesn't include the famous battle for Fort William Henry fought in augustus 1757 between
Monro and Montcalm. There are all sorts of variants of this battle but I can't seem to find the historical one.

Also I noticed that on the map of the Fort William Henry campaign games there is a river called the Hudson which seems to flow into lake George but I
think the Hudson flows to the west of Lake George.

Great observations Marco!!

I've never noted the main Fort William Henry battle missing before, but will look when I get home.

As for the Hudson, it does flow to the west, but not sure if it has ever been rerouted or not. Bad New Yorker I am, to not have a clear answer on that! :D

It happens- Fort Meigs' map has I think the Miami confused with the Maumee or vice versa --- the one being on the opposite side of Ohio. (Of course, my personal opinion is also that it ought to be corrected if it is wrong ... as changing a caption and saving it takes under a minute).
