Despite the significant changes to the landscape, there is still evidence of the past. If you stand at the Fort Miller and Little Carrying Place historic marker and look at the jutting peninsula on the opposite side of the Hudson, you will notice a steep incline that levels at the surface. This is part of the "glacis" (gla-see), a steep artificial slope used for earthwork protections, which surrounded the old French and Indian War era fortification.
