    French and Indian War Page - 1755
      US - Northeast
    This site is dedicated to the French Soldiers who came to New France between 1755 and 1760 to fight in the French and Indian War. This conflict was fought, in the most part, in the Lake George, Lake Champlain region of New York, at Quebec City, and Montreal. While the Canadian Troops and the regiment of La Marine participated in this conflict, I have centered my research on the French Regulars in the regiments of Languedoc, La Reine, Guyenne, Bearn, Royal Roussillon, La Sarre, and Berry. The regiments of Bourgone and Artois are also covered in small details.
    Historical Wampum
      US - Northeast
    'Wampum' is a contraction for the Algonquian word 'wampumpeage' (phonetically pronounced 'wom pom pe ak') or 'white shell beads.' Historical wampum is small (1/8 inch to wide), usually cylindrical, white and purple beads, hand-polished, drilled, and strung into strings or woven into belts. Geometric figures were sometimes, not always, woven into the belts.
    Wampum Belts as Objects
    An actual, individual belt instantiates the sub-class 'wampum belt' in the class 'wampum' in the superclass 'tangible things that represent speech.' In the 'wampum' class, sub-classes other than 'belt' would be 'loose beads' and 'single string of beads'. All wampum belts function similarly. Each instance, or each belt, represents a particular speech event--a single talk, or a particular council meeting, or a specific treaty. From native perspective, the beads carry the information, or the speakers' words. Encapsulation is thus a given. Variables are: an array of beads; bead color; bead size and shape; belt width (number of strands); belt length, and, possibly, geometric figures. Acting on these variables are these methods: record speakers' words; prompt messenger's memory; prompt reciprocal exchange.
