By Joseph W. Zarzynski, Maritime Archaeologist

 

Joseph W. Zarzynski is a maritime archaeologist and author of several books on regional history.

He is a columnist for the Lake George Mirror writing articles on Lake George history and archaeology.

 

His presentation for the Ticonderoga Historical Society will examine French & Indian War (1755-1763)

shipwrecks in Lake George. The PowerPoint program will include: the story of a 1757 sunken sloop

raised in 1903 and sadly cut up for souvenirs, the sunken bateaux of 1758, the 1758 Land Tortoise

radeau known as "North America's oldest intact warship," and a 15 ft. long yellow submarine, built

to photograph sunken colonial bateaux, that was stolen from its dock and sunk in the lake in 1960.
