Lake George - tracing history

This past weekend we finally made it to Lake George in upstate NY. I just love it there - the water is clean, there are lots of fish, and huge history from French Indian wars. Lost of small towns with cozy houses all around the lake. Lost of wild animals - bears included roaming around.

History of the place is quite unique. English built a military fort from logs on the south bank of the lake to cover the main road south towards Albany and NYC. in 1757 it was attacked by the french under the command of the Marquis de Montcalm. He took it after short siege. But he has very little force to continue his drive south so he turned around and went up north to fort Ticonderoga which is much more well built and powerful. English used this respite to gather the forces and start push de Montcalm north. After beating off a three month siege by the English de Montcalm abandoned his quest of NY and went to Quebec where he was killed the following year in a final battle of the war.

I tried pillory myself. It is quite devious design for torture. since it is quite high - you cannot stand on your knees. but it is also quite low to get yourself straight up. so you are forced to stand bended over for days until release. only two minutes into the device - I had a back pain. Now just try to imagine staying there for an hour?
