Lake George Battlefield ParkIn September 1755, a Colonial army commanded by Major General William Johnson camped on this location in preparation for an advance against the French Fortress of St. Frederic at Crown Point on Lake Champlain. On September 8, a French force commanded by Baron Jean-Armand Dieskau attacked Johnson's army, which was barricaded behind a crude breastwork. For five hours the battle raged until finally, with heavy casualties on both sides, the French retreated.
