Louisburg, Nova Scotia
Louisbourg is situated on Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island. Before the American Revolution the French had a stronghold in Nova Scotia, and a fort at Louisbourg, at the gateway to the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes. The fort was built there in part to protect the French cod fishing industry.

In 1745, a militia of four thousand New Englanders made their way up to Louisbourg and took the fort. The taking of Louisbourg shocked the European world. French citizens of the city were shipped back home and eventually the fortress was destroyed by the British.

In the 1960s the Canadian government began a project to rebuild the historic fortress as it had looked in 1744. This history tourism site is not to be missed.
