Historic Group Honors Unknown Soldiers From Colonial Era


A historic preservation group will hold its annual Memorial Day ceremony Monday honoring four unknown American soldiers who died in the Colonial era.

A monument at Lake George Battlefield Park marks the place where the unknown soldiers were reburied after their remains were unearthed in 1931 by a road crew. It’s believed the soldiers served in a Massachusetts regiment that was ambushed in a ravine by the French and Indians in 1755.

Monday’s event will include an honor guard and a musket salute by French and Indian War re-enactors.
