I am a Maltese historian specializing in the military architecture and
fortifications of the Hospitaller Knights of St. John in Malta.
I am currently researching and study an interesting fort in Malta, called
Fort Tigne, designed and built by the last of the Order's military
engineer, the Frenchmen Antoine-Etienne de Tousard, the brother of the famous Louis (Lewis) de Tousard who helped build a few forts and wrote the American Artillerists Companion
I am now trying to locate a portrait of Antoine-Etienne de Tousard engineer, perhaps by locating his descendants, or those of his brother, Louis de Tousard, who may be still be living in the USA.
I am writing in the hope that one of your subscribers may be well versed in the history of Louis de Tousard, and perhaps would be kind enough to assist me in the matter and point me in the right direction.
Thank you for your attention
