No lakes have a greater claim to a place in American history than Lake George and Lake Champlain. During the first two centuries of European habitation, these strategic waterways formed the theater for the struggle for control of North America, first between the British and the French, then between the British and the Americans. Following those wars, the lakes became an important water highway for goods coming from the resource-rich North to the cities on the Atlantic seaboard. Dr. Bellico opens up this fascinating nautical history and covers recent underwater archeological discoveries.
