Glens Falls 2

Glens Falls, in the New York town of the same name, just south of Lake George, kindled Cooper's imagination. Though somewhat disappointed that there is a dam there today, our imaginations were allowed to run wild while contemplating what these Falls may have looked like in his day. This would be the scene of Under The Falls in the movie.

Fort Ti 1 Montcalm launched his massive force of French, Indians & Canadians against the British at Fort William Henry from this impressive fortress. Guarding the portage between Lakes George & Champlain, Fort Ticonderoga evokes images of the 18th century. The pristine setting much resembles what was when the French built this place they called Fort Carillon.

Fort William Henry & Lake GeorgeLake George seen from the north wall of Fort William Henry. The main French force came down from Fort Carillon via the lake. A smaller force of over 3,000 made their way along the west (left) shore, lighting signal fires to aid in guiding the fleet. Montcalm paraded his army across this portion of the lake, in full view of the Fort - but safely out of cannon range - and landed just behind the small peninsula on the left of this photo, where Indian allies launched an assault against some unsuspecting English boats scouting the lake. From there, he began his series of entrenchments along the west shore to assault the Fort at its NW bastion (below left).

Interior of Fort William Henry

A more tranquil view of Lake George, midway between the two forts (looking south towards Fort William Henry).

Massacre Valley Site

The actual site of the Massacre Valley scene. Due to the space limitations of Fort William Henry, most of the British force was actually occupying an entrenched camp less than a half mile east of the Fort. This is where the so-called "massacre" occurred.

Firebar

Hudson River

The Hudson River (location of Canoes in the film) adjacent to the site of Fort Edward, where General Webb was stationed during the siege of Fort William Henry.
