Fort Ticonderoga ~ 1755
Carillon was begun by the French in 1755 between Lake George and Lake
Champlain on the Richlieu River. It was based on Vauban's ancient
fortress at Metz in Alsace-Lorraine. The English captured it in 1759,
and renamed it Fort Ticonderoga. Colonel Ethan Allen, said to be
represented by the figure in the design, recaptured the Fort for the

construction of the Fort by the French.
The stamp was issued to
celebrate the 350th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown. In the
lower, left corner of the stamp is a small map of Hampton Roads where
the Monitor and the Merrimac fought their famous battle. The stamp
also paid tribute to the International Naval Review which was part of
