To me this is truly sad, The destruction of our history in the Lake George region were some the largest battles of the French and Indian war took place and why? About money!




LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) — The French and Indian War battle won here by green Colonial troops is just a footnote in most history books, but the way Randy Patten sees it, the New England farmers who fell during an ambush that opened the fighting didn't need to be buried a second time, 250 years later.

There were soldiers from NY. Mass. and my state CT.




Yet despite its rich history, Lake George's efforts to preserve remnants of its Colonial past often have fallen short, bested by economic development interests in a southern Adirondack town where tourism is the only industry. In the early 1970s, the ruins of a French and Indian War fort were bulldozed to make way for a new hotel on the village's southern end, despite pleas by local preservationists to save at least a portion of the site.
