LAKE GEORGE — The town will hold a public workshop on Wednesday about the findings of the Fort George Battlefield Project.

The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at Town Hall.

There will be a short presentation on the project to study the military history of the battleground and the map developed and sites analyzed.

The town received a $50,000 grant from the National Park Service’s Battlefield Protection Program to hire a firm to conduct an inventory and noninvasive archaeological exploration of sites associated with Fort George battles in the state park during the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War.

Fort George was the site of a key battle in 1755 during the French and Indian War, in which British and Colonial soldiers defeated the French. Americans captured the site from the British in 1775, but Great Britain took it back in 1780.
