In 1749, French Sulpician priest Abbé Picquet established Fort de La Presentation where the St. Lawrence and Oswegatchie Rivers meet at what is now Ogdensburg in Northern New York. By 1755 the settlement included 2,000 Iroquois loyal to France. It was abandoned in 1760 as British troops approached during the French and Indian War.
