Charles, born in Mackinac, was theironly child, but by his mother's previous marriage to a trader namedVilleneuve, he had several half-brothers and sisters. He was educated bythe Jesuit priests of the post where he lived, wrote a good hand, and waseverywhere received as a gentleman. The first event of his careeroccurred when at the age of ten he accompanied his Indian uncles on a warexpedition down the Mississippi. Thither a considerable French army camefrom New Orleans, and built a post near Memphis and there passed a winterpreparing for a campaign against the rebellious Chickasaw. Young DeLanglade became enamoured of military life and learned of its detailsfrom French officers. Before 1750 he had enrolled as a cadet in thecolonial troops, in 1755 was ensign, and in 1760 lieutenant. His firstexpedition was that of 1752, when he drove the British traders from thepost of Pickawillany and killed the Miami chief "Old Britain."

The next year he leftMontreal before its capitulation to Amherst, and brought to Mackinac thenews of the French downfall. Upon desertion of that post by thecommandant, De Langlade as second in command delivered it to the English,and soon thereafter transferred his allegiance and became a loyal Britishsubject. In Pontiac's conspiracy he was instrumental in saving the livesof several British soldiers; soon thereafter he removed his home to GreenBay, where he and his father had long had a trading post. there as thechief settler he became known as the "Father of Wisconsin". His servicesfor the British during the American Revolution were considerable; he hadthe rank of captain in the Indian department and sent Indian auxiliariesto Carleton and Burgoyne. In the West he parried the efforts of GeorgeRogers Clark, and opposed both American and Spanish partisans. The Kinggranted him lands in Canada for his services. In 1754 he was married atMackinac to Charlotte Bourassa and left numerous descendents chiefly inthe Grignon line. He lived at Green Bay in patriarchal fashion and theredied in the midst of his descendents and ......
