In 1998, a bill signed by President Clinton gave Lake Champlain the title of the nation's sixth great lake, which allowed states to apply for educational and research money for the lake. There was such an uproar about the lake becoming the sixth great lake, the bill was rescinded after 18 days, but the educational and research money continued to flow. The lake has about 80 islands. I love some of the island names such as, four brothers island. It makes me wonder why they came up with such a name?
