Fort Crown Point, Crown Point NY

 

It was told that Fort Crown Point was built on the ruins of Saint-Federic Fort (a French fort that was never attached and later destroyed in 1759).  The British Army under General Jeffery Amherst constructed a larger fort after the capture of Carillon (a French Fort to the south).  This also was never under attack, however the garrison was captured in early days of the American Revolutionary War.  Today it is preserved in the Crown Point State Historic Site and are on the National Historic Landmarks.  Though it didn't see battle, it reminds of us how troops lived.  When visiting please check out the museum and be respectful of the grounds.
