William Griffith Signing The Battle of Lake George

William Griffith will be signing his book The Battle of Lake George.

In the early morning of September 8, 1755, a force of French Regulars, Canadians and Indians crouched unseen in a ravine south of Lake George. Under the command of French general Jean-Armand, Baron de Dieskau, the men ambushed the approaching British forces, sparking a bloody conflict for control of the lake and its access to New Yorks interior. Against all odds, British commander William Johnson rallied his men through the barrage of enemy fire to send the French retreating north to Ticonderoga. The stage was set for one of the most contested regions throughout the rest of the conflict.

Historian William Griffith recounts the thrilling history behind the first major British battlefield victory of the French and Indian War.
