Is this whom Lake Champlain was named after? My husband and I spent a memorable weekend with my mother's cousin and her husband in a pretty cottage beside this beautiful lake in 1983.

I take it there should be a picture of a stamp or something, Gillian? What are you referring to?

Sorry, the link doesn't appear to work. Maybe try copying and pasting? I see the article appeared in the August 2017 issue of the Stamp Magazine and there was a thread then about it. I gather from that thread that you might be the one to answer my query, Carmen!

Thanks in advance!

Yup, it was. From some page:

The lake was visited in 1609 by the French explorer Samuel de Champlain, whence its name. Of considerable historical significance, it was used by early settlers as a gateway between French Canada and the English colonies and was the scene of battles in the French and Indian Wars, the American Revolution, and the War of 1812.
