About Lake Ontario
The Lake Ontario is surrounded by Ontario province on the north, west, and southwest; and by the state of New York on the south and east. It is the smallest and most easterly of the Great Lakes of North America. Most of Ontario's populous cities, including Toronto and Hamilton, are situated on the lake's northern or western shores. The primary inlet is the Niagara River from Lake Erie.
History of Lake Ontario
In 1615, Étienne Brûlé, a French scout, and Samuel de Champlain visited Lake Ontario. The Ontario region was held by the Iroquois Indians, allies of the British. But during the late 17th and early 18th centuries, a temporary peace allowed the French to build forts, including Fort-Frontenac (1673) near the lake. Later the war between the French and Indian led to British control, and the American Revolution hastened settlement, trade, and shipping in the region.
