    The story goes that at some point Rogers turned his snowshoes around 180 degs. He more or less walked to area of Rogers Rock somehow giving the illusion that he was walking away from there. Allegedly he then slid down the rock that bears his name to Lake George. “War on the Run: The Epic Story of Robert Rogers and the Conquest of America’s First Frontier” by John F. Ross. Ross. describes the story but with a healthy skepticism. I have read similar accounts elsewhere.

    There is little doubt about Rogers rock! As a teenager in the late 60’s I dove off the area in lake George and there is a ledge at about 30-40 feet below the water line where we found artifacts, a musket , a stirrup lead shot etc. we viewed these items back at our campsite on one of the islands. A park ranger came by checking camp permits and we showed him the items we found. He informed us we could not keep them and we surrendered them to Fort Henry museum. They were displayed for a time with accreditation for the Find going to The Enfield Aquaholics, our dive club from Enfield CT.
