Fortress of Louisbourg:

Initially founded by a small group of French colonists in 1713, Louisbourg quickly became a thriving community around its large natural port. It was the center of French power in the Atlantic region, home to one of the largest military garrisons in New France, an important economic and cultural crossroads, and a major hub for fishing and trading ships from around the world. Captured by the British in 1758, Louisbourg was eventually abandoned in 1768. Today, it is considered a National Historical Site
