3. Indian Trail Marker
The rangers' unconventional nature was demonstrated in the "battle on snowshoes" of 1758, when Rogers’ forces struck an unsuspecting enemy near Lake George by conveying themselves across snow and ice on snowshoes, skates and sleds. Most armies of the day simply closed down operations during the cold weather months and devoted their energies to planning the next spring's offensive.
