This encampment is part of the historic route traveled by General Burgoyne and his army known as the Burgoyne Road. It was the 37th Regiment of NYS Militia that was active during the war and the Battle of the Boquet. Burgoyne's campground existed near the mouth on both sides of the Boquet River. Over the in-gathering of his far-flung forces, this campground extended down to Split Rock and at Grog Harbor in Essex, where many of his forces could be ferried over to Vermont.
