Lake George Battlefield Park

At a junction along one of the most historic water routes in America, connecting the Hudson River to Lake Champlain, this site witnessed military engagements during both the French and Indian War (1755-1763) and the American Revolution (1775-1783). This park encompasses the sites of several bloody actions, including the 1755 Battle of Lake George, the siege of the entrenched camp by the Marquis de Montcalm's army in 1757 and the subsequent "massacre" following the surrender of Fort William Henry, and a British raid in 1780. During the course of both wars, numerous fortifications and outworks were built at this site, including Fort George, built in 1759 by the British army and a hospital built in 1776, as well as shipyards, barracks, sawmills and storehouses.
