Back before the United States were the United States, or even seriously considering operating as a collection of colonies, the English and French were involved in a globe spanning struggle. The origins of this struggle don’t particularly matter to this discussion, but I’ll tell you this. They were close to 700 years old when this site was built by the British. Crown Point was built at the edge of French and English possessions in the new world, bestriding Lake Champlain the simpliest route between Quebec and New York. In fact, before Crown Point was built the French had built a defensive fort of their own on the same site. The image below is the former barricks building. At the time of its construction Crown Point was one of the largest fortifications in North America, and it never came under direct attack.
