Definition: Fort on Lake Champlain that was one of the most heavily fortified forts France owned. They called it Fort St. Frederic and used it to control operations on Lake Champlain and traffic to the St. Lawrence River. British forces under Jeffery Amherst captured the fort in summer 1759 and named it Fort Crown Point. The later capture of Fort Ticonderoga, another Lake Champlain fort, gave the British control of the lake and a vital entry point to the St. Lawrence River itself.
