[Encampment of De La Barre on Lac Frontenac]

Important Early French Fur Trading Post.

Interesting engraving depicting the Encampment of Joseph-Antoine le Fèbvre de La Barre.

La Barre (1622-1688) was the Governor of New France from 1682 to 1685.

Having replaced the frustrated Comte de Frontenac, La Barre set out to permanently establish the fur trade in the west (in and around what is now Kingston, Ontario). In 1683 he, along with a few hundred soldiers (Troupes de la marine), made camp at the future site of Oswego, New York, to wait for the Iroquois attack.

After a while, over a hundred of La Barre's men fell ill and supplies ran out. La Barre and his men elected to return to Montreal and abandon the west. They left Oswego and Fort Frontenac (Kingston) to the Iroquois. As punishment, the French government handed La Barre's governorship to Jacques-René de Brisay, Marquis de Denonville, a tough, pious cavalry officer.

Issued in Memoires de l'Amerique Septentrionale ou la Suite des Voyages ...., one of the most influential and fanciful works of its time.
