Ticonderoga in Essex County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
we lie possessed of praise that grows not old.
And here were men coequal with their fate
who did great things unconscious they were great.

Ethan Allen – Delaplace

Powell – Brown
“lulled are the passion and the pain
the legend and the race remain”
