Naive folk art powder horn, French & Indian War, Crown Point, 1761, by Pvt. Joseph Loomis of Windsor, CT

ITEM #: H-01

PRICE: $8,500.00

Description:


Loomis was in Lyman’s First Connecticut regiment during Abercromby’s disastrous attack on Ticonderoga in 1758, and rejoined in 1761,after the French had been driven from lake Champlain.  Amherst used Crown Point, which he garrisoned with American provincial troops such as Loomis, as his forward base for the final assault on Montreal and the ultimate conquest of New France.  New Englanders commemorated the fall of Crown Point on powder horns because, from its construction in the 1720s, it had been the advanced French base from which Indian raids struck New England.
