    A walk to the horseshoe battery on the point commemorates the finest American day on the Mount—Oct. 28, 1776, when the defensive strength here helped convince Gen. Guy Carleton and his British fleet to head back to Canada for the winter, giving the Northern American Army time to plan for 1777. Afternoon includes artillery fire.
