Carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA

James Le Tort, a French-Swiss Indian trader, settled with an Indian tribe near the site about 1720. The town, laid out in 1751, was named for Carlisle, Cumberland, England. It was the setting for continuous conflict with the Iroquois Confederacy until Benjamin Franklin negotiated a treaty in 1753. The peace failed, however, with the start of the French and Indian War the following year. A provincial fort was built there in 1756, and Carlisle was the starting point for many American colonial military expeditions during the war.
