Fort Edward/Rogers Island


Situated north of Albany where the Hudson River swings within 15 miles of Lake George, Fort Edward’s strategic importance cannot be overstated. It commanded the southern terminus of the critical portage between the Hudson River and Lake George. Defensively, it provided the last line of protection for Albany and the lower Hudson Valley against invasion from the north. Offensively, it provided a staging area for British army campaigns into the Lake George, Lake Champlain, and Richelieu River corridor.
