On August 7, 1760, Sergeant Cameron of the 44th Regiment of Foot was tried under the accusation that he had threatened to report the Commandant of Fort Niagara to General Thomas Gage.The depositions in Cameron’s court martial contain many bizarre details–including an anonymous note, a bad laundry job, a fistfight, and lots of gossip–convoluting the case into an interpersonal mess. However, inside the dramatic specifics lie keys to understanding the precarious position occupied by women in the 18th century British military, as much of the case centers around the actions of women working for the 44th Regiment.

Presented by Hanae Weber, Old Fort Niagara’s lead civilian interpreter, as part of Women’s History Month, this virtual program explores not only the petty particulars of the Cameron Court Martial, but also the clues this case gives us regarding the way women working for the British military were viewed and treated at Fort Niagara and the wider 18th century world.
