Honoring the Sacrifice of Veterans Beginning in 1775
May 26, 2014
We salute the service of the armed forces of the United States on the grounds where so many American soldiers fought and sacrificed. Parade into Fort Ticonderoga behind the Fife and Drum Corps, stepping back in time to look at the soldiers of the American Revolution. See Fort Ticonderoga at the beginning of the American Revolution in 1775; a hive of activity as citizens turned soldiers take up pick and ax, hammer and saw to rebuild this old French Fort from the French and Indian war. All day long watch these new soldiers in the Continental Army ply their civilian trades to help build this military outpost. See horse power in action as lumber, firewood, and military stores move in and out of Fort Ticonderoga. Hear the report of gunpowder as soldiers test cannon barrels and practice their gunnery.
