Summary
Fort Ontario, a British Army garrison located at Oswego in New York, was constructed in late 1759 and commanded by Colonel Frederick Haldimand of the 4th Battalion Royal Americans (60th Regiment of Foot). The Fort Ontario ledger, 1759-1761, 1763, with a name index, contains entries of purchases and payments by British and colonial officers and others at the Fort, 1759 November-1761 May. The bulk of the entries are dated 1760 May-August, reflecting the buildup and departure of forces supporting Major General Jeffery Amherst's successful campaign to capture Montreal during the French and Indian War.
