Vaudreuil knew all this, but Montcalm was unsure. ” In the government of New France, the intendant was the second most powerful post, and his responsibilities included military finances and logistics. Now all three leaders were in accord about attacking Oswego. To fool the Anglo-Americans, Montcalm went with Lévis and part of the general staff to Ticonderoga to lure their spies into thinking he was preparing some operation in that area, but then on July 16 he discreetly hurried back, leaving Lévis in command there, and, after short stops in Montreal and La Présentation, took command of the troops gathering at Fort Frontenac on July 29.

The guns of Fort Ontario also opened fire and continued to shoot until nightfall, but with no effect. com Montcalm’s Raid On Oswego MONTCALM’S STRENGTH AT OSWEGO According to La Pause’s account (in RAPQ), who acted as Montcalm’s chief of staff, the French army arriving at Oswego consisted of the following troops: 4 brass 12-pdr cannons La Sarre: 416 NCOs and privates, 27 officers, total: 443 2 brass 2-pdr cannons Guyenne: 441 NCOs and privates, 29 officers, total: 470 4 iron 12-pdr cannons Béarn: 381 NCOs and privates, 29 officers, total: 410 6 iron 8-pdr cannons Artillery and militia: 1,042 NCOs and privates, 4 officers, total: 1,046.

When attacked in August, a report to Colonel Mercer made by French army deserters mentioned a small group of men in Montcalm’s army that were “cloathed in Red faced with Green” and were mistakenly thought to belong “to the Irish Brigade” (DHSNY, II). These red-coated soldiers were actually Irish Catholics that had deserted to the French. More switched sides after Oswego’s surrender, and an Irish company was formed in June 1757. It was posted in Quebec City until September 1757 when it was transferred to France to be incorporated in France’s Irish regiments in Europe; it was feared they would be hanged if recaptured in Canada by the British.
