Lake Champlain and Plattsburgh

Hello,
An interesting post. Plattsburgh Barracks was one of the "regimental posts" of the "Old Army" of the early days of the 20th Century that were strung along the international boundary with Canada, a British Empire Dominion, in New York. Similar posts existed out West in Michigan, Minnesota and the Plains States.

The 26th Infantry Regiment was stationed there.

Other such posts included Fort Ethan Allen near Essex Junction, VT which contained a squadron of 16th Cavalry Regiment, and the 7th Field Artillery Regiment; Madison Barracks, near Watertown at Sacketts Harbor, which had the 1st Bn, 5th Field Artillery, and the 2nd Bn, 25th Field Artillery, and farther west Fort Niagara near Buffalo, which had another Infantry Regiment
