While Loudoun ponders his next move, Drucour takes the initiative and marches his force of two regiments of Regulars on an attack against the lightly garrisoned Fort Oswego. Abandoning Fort Stanwix will likely lead to its recapture by the British. For the French, eliminating British influence on the shores of Lake Ontario seemed a better gambit. History will be the judge of Drucour's decision.
