1757 Battle on Snowshoes Re-enactment

On January 21st, Fort Ticonderoga recreated the epic 1757 Battle on Snowshoes on the anniversary of the event. This lesser known, but no less dramatic battle, brought to life the fierce clash in the woods between French soldiers and Rogers Rangers as the roar of muskets highlighted Ranger warfare and the struggle for North America. 

Highlighted programming featured throughout the day brought to life both the British Ranger story and French history at Fort Carillon, later named Ticonderoga.
