Fort Edward, New York

Fort Edward is located in Fort Edward, NY, north of Albany, near Glens Falls. The location of the fort is a strategic junction of the Lake Champlain and the Hudson River Valleys. The fort itself served as a base for Rogers Rangers, a group of colonial militia who fought for the British in the French and Indian War. Fort Edward has a visitor's center which displays artifacts from the French and Indian War. The Old Fort House Museum, also located in Fort Edward, was built from materials salvaged from the fort in 1772. The Museum contains a large diorama of the 1755 Fort and surrounding area.
