Some 200 miles north of New York, Fort Ticonderoga was strategically important as a portage on the river between Canada and the British colonies. Occupied by the French under the name Fort Carillon, it was situated on a spit of land between Lake George and Lake Champlain. The defences consisted of entrenchments and a tall rampart. Large trees had been felled and were positioned in front of the rampart, with sharpened branches pointing outwards.
