Treasure in the St Lawrence Seaway

The legend holds that during the French and Indian War – 1754 to 1763 – payrolls for the French troops stationed in the chain of forts extending from Quebec through the Great Lakes and down the Mississippi River had been brought as far as Fort Levis on Chimney Island, about three miles downriver from Ogdensburg, when British Lord Jeffrey Amherst began his advance from Oswego and stopped the shipment of gold during the Battle of the Thousand Islands.
