About the maps
TrailTripTip: To find monument NY7, continue south on Route 9N into Village of Lake George. At south end of main commercial area, turn left onto Beach Road and drive between Lake George on left and Fort William Henry on right. At end of beach area turn right onto Fort George Road and watch for monument on your right.

Context: Frustrated in the attempt to reach the south end of the lake, Knox and his crew spent the night of December 10th at Bolton Landing. The Knox diary records: we warmed ourselves sufficiently and took a comfortable nap - laying with our backs to the fire...

The next morning, they started again: - about half an hour before day break that is about a quarter after rising we set out and in six hours & a quarter of excessive hard pushing against a fresh breeze we reach'd Fort George.
