Actually Fort Niagara is in Onanadaga province and not in Niagara. It is on the east side of the Niagara river in present day New York state. It was established in 1679 as a trading post named Fort Conti by de LaSalle. Although the French never settled the area, when the British took control of the Fort in 1759 they started settling the area. By the time of the American Revolution the area had several settlements. Settlers from the region fought for the British in units such as Butlers Rangers and the Royal Regiment of New York. After the war they settled on the British side which in EU is the province of Niagara, which had also been settled by the British. Fort Niagara and the surrounding area were not actually handed over to the United States until Jay's treaty in 1796 in return for the United States promising to pay compensation to the Loyalists for having taken all their property and possessions. Of course the United States never lived up to their end of the bargain, so really we still own Fort Niagara.Originally posted by Greven
ONANDAGA  dF 1651, dE 1685 – No Settlement. US 1782. The French colonynames file places Fort Niagara here, fort Niagara was in Niagara and French power did not extend to here (though they destroyed the native town of Onandaga in 1696 no-one settled this region - so, in game terms the Iroquois were never territorially defeated but became ‘vassals’ of the French.
