Beginning in April, 1760, Montgomery led a force of Highlanders, Royal Scotts, and South Carolinians against the Lower Towns, but abandoned his march to relieve Fort Loudoun in Tennessee. As a result, that garrison was forced to surrender.
Appy was judge advocate and secretary to Lord Loudoun and Sir Jeffery Amherst, commanders of the British forces in North America during the French and Indian War.
