A reprint edition of Peter S. Palmer’s detailed history, originally published in 1866.
History of Lake Champlain 1609-1814
About the Book
No inland body of water has played as decisive a role in the history of the Western Hemisphere as has Lake Champlain, and it holds a special position in American naval history as the birthplace of the United States Navy. Within a short span of 65 years, three wars were fought on its shores and waters, each leaving its indelible mark on the destiny of North America. Peter S. Palmer (1814-1890) chronicles those years with such detail that his book has been a resource for students of Lake Champlain history for over a hundred years.
Peter Sailly Palmer’s History of Lake Champlain was first published in 1866. The text of this fourth edition was reproduced from the third edition published in New York by Frank Lovell & Company between 1886 and 1889. Maps and illustrations have been added.
