Bloody Pond


Colonel Joseph Blanchard, commander of Fort Edward, saw the smoke from Dieskau’s assault on Johnson’s camp, and sent a detachment of men to assist Johnson. Meanwhile, the attack on Johnson’s camp proved unsuccessful, and when Dieskau went down with a serious injury, the attack was abandoned. The fleeing French army soon fell upon the detachment of Colonial troops and a massacre ensued. The bodies of the French troops who were killed were thrown into the pool, which bore the name “Bloody Pond.” Visit to view our Passage Minute short videos, and learn more about Bloody Pond.
