Book - Digging Up History
Digging Up History by Gerald E. Bradfield, former curator of the Fort William Henry museum, provides background of the French and Indian War in the Lake George area. He takes us through its early habitation, arrival of the Europeans, the conflict between New France and Britain and the building of the fort. The work continues through the tumultuous two years of the fort's history culminating in the siege, surrender and massacre in 1757. The book concludes by bringing the reader up to date with archaeological digs, Hollywood's adaptation of the Last of the Mohicans and the present day fort. 135 pages.
