Bloody Creek 1757: map showing location of monument
Map showing the location of the monument
commemorating the 1757 Battle of Bloody Creek,
Annapolis County, Nova Scotia.
Roads are shown as they were in 1978.  Except for Highway 101, the
layout of the roads in 2006 has not changed much from that shown here.



The ambush took place about 12 miles (20km) northeast of the fort on the north
side of the Annapolis River.  Now known as Bloody Creek, a memorial marks the
spot today on the south side of the river just where Highway 201 intersects
Bloody Creek, a mile west of the present day community of Carleton Corner.
