LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) - A 24-foot-long canoe sculpture depicting a scene from the Colonial America era has been unveiled in the upstate New York village where bloody 18th-century battles were fought.

The sculpture made from an eastern white pine tree was created by Paul Stark. It depicts five American Indians paddling a canoe with New Hampshire frontiersman Maj. Robert Rogers, who led British army scouts during the French and Indian War.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (https://bit.ly/2x48U5L ) the work was unveiled during a brief ceremony held Thursday in front of Fort William Henry along the southern shore of Lake George.
