Lake Champlain is the eighth largest naturally occurring body of fresh water in the United States. The lake was a corridor along which Native, French, English and American forces vied for control and defined territorial and political boundaries. Linked by canals to the south, west, and north, the waterway became a shipping lane, transporting natural resources, farm products, and people, and speeding communication as the nation expanded.
