This tablet marks the landing for the grand carry on the Great War Trail between the Indian tribes of the north and south country. It also marks the beginning of that carry between the lakes to avoid the falls and rapids, which later became the Military Road built by the French in 1755.

The French saw mill, the first ever built in the Champlain Valley, was erected in 1756 at the foot of the falls on the site of the present mills. In this saw mill, Abercromby had his headquarters during his disastrous battle with Montcalm's forces at the French lines July 8, 1758.

Washington and Franklin passed over this Military Road during the Revolution.

Presented to the Ticonderoga Historical Society for the citizens of the town by the Ticonderoga Paper Company. Unveiled by the New York State Historical Association, October 4, 1910.
