Fort William Henry
— 1755 - 1757 —You are looking at the general area of the cemetery which encompassed most of the parking area and extended across Canada Street. Many soldiers died from wounds inflicted during battle, but most deaths were related to infection and disease. In 1842, "the marks of a thousand graves could be seen among the trees. Most had been opened, the bones and skulls dug up in great numbers."
