LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) - A historic preservation group is holding its annual Memorial Day ceremony honoring four unknown American soldiers who died in the Colonial era.

Monday morning’s ceremony is being held at Lake George Battlefield Park on the southern end of Lake George.

A monument marks the place where the unknown soldiers were reburied after their remains were unearthed in 1931 by a road crew that was working south of the village of Lake George.

It’s believed the soldiers served in a Massachusetts regiment that was ambushed in a ravine by the French and Indians in September 1755.

Monday’s event will include an honor guard and a musket salute by French and Indian War re-enactors. A tour of the park by members of the Lake George Battlefield Park Alliance is being offered.
