The period between 1740 and 1760 was marked by a rise of Military spirit in New England. The colonists were confronted with a scheme of conquest which threatened to bring them under the rule of France, and thus to root up their most cherished rights and liberties.
Isaac Foote was one of those whose patriotism led him into the Army. The records do not tell us what part he bore in those early campaigns which culminated in the capture of Louisburg. In the suceeding was of 1755 we find him holding the rank of Major, which indicates he must have born some honorabl part in the previous struggle. (see Families of Dickermen Ancestry. Pages 505 and 506).
