South of Lake Champlain. This beautiful lake was known to
the Indians as Horicon, and to the French as Lac St. Sacrament. The
outlet of the lake, after circling through the forest and passing over a
series of leaps in the falls of Ticonderoga, flows nearly two miles and
enters Lake Champlain just above Fort George. Lying on the recognized
thoroughfare, north and south, this lake has been the scene of many
memorable conflicts, in the Indian and colonial wars. =Index=: (Samuel de Champlain era)
