The Battle of Signal Hill took place on September 15, 1762 and was the last battle of the French and Indian War. This battle, even though it was very short, was very fatal. The French had 295 men as the British has 200. William Amherst hit the French with a surprise attack coming from downhill and going uphill. The French commander, Guillaume de Bellecombe, was seriously injured in the short battle. The British commander William Amherst also had his legs shattered from a bullet. After the French commander was wounded, the French withdrew and gave up the fort to the British. The French suffered 20-40 losses as the British only suffered 5 and had about 20 wounded.
