West side of Lake Champlain. Fort Frederic was built here
in 1731; rebuilt, 1734; and strengthened, 1742. It was blown up by
Bourlamaque, 1759, to prevent its falling into the hands of the British;
and the same year Amherst built a fort about two hundred yards west of
the site of Fort Frederic. This fort was captured, 1775, by Ethan
Allen's men; recaptured by Carleton the following year. Under the terms
of the treaty of Paris, 1783, Crown Point became American territory.
