Lake George Battlefield ParkNumerous vessels plied the waters of the lake during the French and Indian War (1755-1763) and the American Revolution (1775-1783). Many of the smaller vessels were constructed elsewhere, while others were constructed at the south end of Lake George employing shipwrights from throughout the colonies. These watercraft consisted largely of bateaux, row galleys, sloops, schooners and radeaux. Today, remnants of these warships lie on the lake bottom, sunk during enemy action, or scuttled as a means of winter storage, as was the seven-gun, 52-foot radeau Land Tortoise, discovered in 1990. A number of these sites are open to divers.
