Known to Native Americans as Wahcoloosencoochaleva, or the "Great Carrying Place," Fort Edward is a destination of great strategic significance. Fort Edward and Rogers Island were still occupied by a small garrison of American soldiers during the Revolution, but General John Burgoyne’s army forced them to flee in 1777. Visit the Rogers Island Visitor Center, a Lakes to Locks Passage Heritage Center, for more information.
