Is it correct to say "to stand the ladders against the walls" laying a siedge to the castle?

With my pedant's hat on, may I point out that one does not normally lay "a" siege. One "lays siege to", or "besieges" somewhere.
I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
