Colonel Henry Bouquet- Henry's Pre-Life

Henry Bouquet was born in 1719 in Rolle, Switzerland. His father was an English man who served in the Military. Growing up in that environment, Henry wanted to be in the Military just like his father. Just like he envisioned, when he was 17, he joined the Military. He started off as a cadet in the Dutch Republic Army. Later on, during the Australian Succession, he moved up to being lieutenant. In 1755, the Dutch, German, Swiss, and Americans decided to work together. In 1756 he set sail to North America and from there his Military career got bigger and bigger.1
