Warship film to be screened

LAKEGEORGE - On Wednesday, April 27 at 7 p.m., the Caldwell-Lake George Library will present an evening of underwater discovery with a free screening of "Wooden Bones: The Sunken Fleet of 1758."

For more than 20 years, a group of shipwreck sleuths with Bateaux Below - a group dedicating to discovery and preservation of underwater vessels - have worked to answer puzzling questions about "The Sunken Fleet of 1758."

Why did the British deliberately sink much of their mountain lake squadron? the historians have wondered. How did the British raise many of these warships, and how did this unconventional strategy help the British win the French & Indian War?

Members of Bateaux Below will be present before and after the movie to answer questions. Joseph Zarzynski & Bob Benway will be available to sign copies of their new book, "Lake George Shipwrecks and Sunken History."

Citizens are urged to join underwater archaeologists with Bateaux Below as they delve into the depths of Lake George to uncover the answers. For details, see ww.thelostradeau.com/woodenbones/home.htm or call 668-2528.

The program is made possible due to the generosity of the Glenn & Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, Pepe Productions and Bateaux Below.
