Fort Ticonderoga offers four middle or high school teachers the opportunity to attend the Eleventh Annual Fort Ticonderoga Seminar on the American Revolution September 19-21, 2014 on scholarships. The Seminar takes place in the Deborah Clarke Mars Education Center and is open to the public; pre-registration is required. The scholarships are available for educators who are first-time attendees at the Seminar.
Since 2001, Fort Ticonderoga has provided 115 scholarships for teachers to attend its seminars and conferences at no cost, including 43 scholarships to attend the Seminar on the American Revolution. Teachers from 10 states have been awarded Seminar scholarships over the past 10 years. These scholarships are made possible by the generous support of Seminar patrons.
The Seminar on the American Revolution focuses on the military, political, and social history of the American Revolution (1775-1783), bringing together a panel of distinguished historians from around the country. This seminar continues to grow. We expect nearly 150 attendees for this weekend-seminar; a mixed audience of scholars and members of the general public with a deep interest in the history of the founding of our country.
We are excited about this year’s line-up of speakers, which includes:
- Todd Andrlik
- Todd Braisted
- Tom Chambers
- Ted Corbett
- Steven Elliott
- Cameron Green
- Don Hagist
- Arthur Lefkowitz
- Richard Wiggin
