Excerpts from:  HistoricLakes.org____________________________________________

FOURTEEN MILE ISLAND, LAKE GEORGE, NEW YORK

Lake George's privately owned Fourteen Mile Island, is so named because it is some 14 miles from old Fort George at the southern end of Lake George (at least that is what Lt. James Hadden tells us in his Journal 5). It has had other names in the past, among them are Beardsley's and Kenesaw Island. Hadden tells us "Here we encamped [July 27, 1777], there being only one House on the Island; we saw and killed a great number of Rattle Snakes...". Fourteen Mile Island was also the scene of another dramatic event that took place during the American Revolution. On July 15, 1779, a group of officers led by Major Wait Hopkins, accompanied by some civilians were on the island berry-picking. They were attacked by a scouting party of three white men and 24 Indians. Nine members of the Hopkins party were scalped and killed and the rest were taken prisoner.7
