Lake George Battlefield Park

Lake George played an important role throughout the American Revolution as a transportation route, staging area and outpost. In December 1775, as some American troops were ferried north during their abortive invasion of Canada, Colonel Henry Knox's train of artillery from Fort Ticonderoga crossed Lake George bound for Boston. A hospital and shipbuilding facility built by the Americans at the south end of the lake were captured by Burgoyne's advancing army in 1777. In response, a small flotilla commanded by Colonel John Brown unsuccessfully attacked a British depot on Diamond Island on September 24, 1777.
