Description: General Sir William Fenwick Williams, 1st Baronet of Kars (1800 – 1883) was a Nova Scotian. He and other British officers inspired poorly equipped Turkish soldiers to repel Russian attacks by General Murav’ev on the besieged town of Kars during the Crimean War for three months. They caused 6,000 Russian casualties, but were forced to surrender on their own terms due to starvation, disease and shortage of ammunition.
