Fort Ticonderoga ~ 1755

     Fort 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 Continental Congress. The stamp commemorates the two hundredth anniversary of its founding by the French. The image on the stamp was drawn by Michel Chartier de Lotbiniere for the original construction of the  Fort by the French.
