As Brian May once wrote, "Here I stand (here I stand) / Looked around, around, around, around, around." That's how I felt on my first day. I was nervous and felt overwhelmed by everything, but I somehow managed to lose those feelings within the first couple of hours.  I have been keeping a journal, so I can remember everything that happens each day. I have found this to be very helpful, as the days do seem to run together. Below is a summary with the highlights of each day of my first week.

The French and Indian War may have begun in 1754; however, war between France and Great Britain was not officially declared until 1756, with the start of the Seven Years War. Between 1756-1757, Lieutenant General Louis Joseph de Montcalm's French and Native American forces had a string of victories. Although the Siege at Fort William Henry was a French victory, Montcalm managed to alienate both his Native American allies, and the British, as a result of the Fort William Henry Massacre.
