So where is The Common Man?
He has arrived at Fort Edward, NY. That is where the Champlain Canal completely leaves the Hudson River and heads north to Lake Champlain. We'll be stopping here for a few days and a couple of programs. Please join us Thursday evening, July 5th at 7 pm at the Rogers Island Visitors Center for our first Powerpoint slide presentation of The French and Indian War - The Basics. It's about an overview of the French and Indian War from the Common Man's perspective.
The photo above was taken by June Curtis of Ticonderoga. It is of the Common Man rowing up the Hudson River out of Albany.
It's a big river out there and we're a very small canoe!
We're glad to be entering the relative safety of the Champlain Canal for a few days starting on Saturday. Weather looks good so far.
