French colonial administrator who governed New France (1672–1682 and 1689–1698) and held Quebec against the British in King William's War (1690).
(born Louis de Buade) 1620-98; Fr. colonial governor in North America (1672-82; 1689-98)
Philip Schuyler served in the Provincial Army during the Seven Years' War, first as captain and later as deputy-commissary with the rank of major, taking part in the battles of Lake George (1755), Oswego River (1756), Ticonderoga (1758) and Fort Frontenac (1758).
With Frontenac gone, these savages almost strangled the colony.
Then the strong man Frontenac was recalled to face the crisis.
Frontenac planned attacks upon New England and encouraged a ruthless border warfare that involved many horrors.
When Frontenac answered defiantly, Phips attacked the place; but he was repulsed and in the end sailed away unsuccessful.
