The Governor of Canada, Marquis de Vaudreuil ordered the erection of a fort at Ticonderoga after the defeat of the French Canadian forces at the battle of Lake George. Building of Fort Carillon as it was originally named, commenced in the fall of 1755 and continued for the next 3 years. The star-shaped design followed the best tradition established by the renowned French military engineer Marquis de Vauban.
