We also watched the on the sonar monitor as we passed over the remains of a bridge constructed by American Patriots during the Revolutionary War. The bridge crossed the waters to connect the shore on the Fort Ticonderoga side with another fort and redoubts on Mount Independence. We also passed over a sunken floating (yes, floating) railroad bridge and a box car. There are all kinds of shipwrecks in this amazing lake, some very historically significant (such as one of Benedict Arnold's gunboats, the Spitfire).
These shores hold lots of history - landing points and take off positions from the 17th century through today.
