Jim Millard's conversations

His name is synonymous with treason. Had fate dealt him a kinder hand, it would be with bravery instead. Read his life, walk a mile in his shoes, and judge him then. What a pity if you don't.

A strategic command point between Lakes George and Champlain during the French and Indian War (1755-63). Originally built by the French and named Fort Carillon in 1755, gallantly defended by Montcalm in 1758 against Abercromby. It fell to Amherst in 1759 and renamed Fort Ticonderoga. Benedict Arnold and Ethan Allen subdued its garrison at the outbreak of the Revolution in 1775. Arthur St. Clair abandoned it to the British without a fight in 1777. This national treasure I find unequal as a relic of American history. The photo speaks for itself.

What a shot! The birthplace of a legend. Look closer and judge for yourself. "Did he slid down the slide that today bears his name? Or didn't he?". It seems an incredible feat to achieve. On the other hand, Rogers the Ranger WAS an incredible man. I think he did anyway!
