Fort Ticonderoga’s 2020 Campaign Season and Daily Visitation have been postponed. NY Gov. Cuomo has announced “NY Forward,” a staged reopen plan in response to COVID-19. Although the situation may change, Fort Ticonderoga anticipates that our gates will once again open to visitors when the North Country enters Phase 4 of the “NY Forward” plan in early July. Our priority is the safety and health of our employees, community, and visitors. Stay tuned for developments.

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a coppe This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a copper knife! Knives with blades made of copper, or brass, like this were used when working with gunpowder and fuses, since they would not create sparks that could cause a dangerous accident. This particular knife has “Enterprise” stenciled on both sides of the handle, possibly suggesting its use on one of the various vessels named USS Enterprise, that served the US Navy in the 19th century. #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #19thcentury #museumcollection #history #militaryhistory

Yesterday’s #NameThatTuneTuesday piece was “Th Yesterday’s #NameThatTuneTuesday piece was “The King Shall Enjoy,” otherwise known as “When the King Enjoys His Own Again” or “When the King Comes Home in Peace Again.” This song was written in 1643 during the English civil war and remained popular through the 18th century. You may have identified the tune as “Word Turned Upside Down,” which was yet another title this piece was published under in 1646. However, one of the most debated stories surrounding music of the American Revolution involves the claim that this piece was played by the British as Cornwallis’s troops surrendered at Yorktown. Given the delightful nature of this tune, it is unlikely that this piece was performed, as diaries and journals of the time indicated a slow, melancholy march. #Tunesday #KingShallEnjoy #WorldTurnedUpsideDown #Yorktown #FifeandDrum #26thFoot #DigitalCampaign #FortTiconderoga

Robert Rogers died #OTD in 1795 at the age of 63. Robert Rogers died #OTD in 1795 at the age of 63. Rogers is best remembered as the commander Rogers’ Rangers, a British unit that served with considerable success in the French and Indian War. This 1776 print depicts Rogers in uniform, where he is credited as being the “Commander in Chief of the Indians in the Back Settlements of America”, an attribution made when he was rumored to have been named commander of American-allied Native forces. While Rogers did seek a Continental commission, he was regarded with suspicion and jailed, leading to his establishment of the Queen’s Rangers, an American Loyalist unit that served in the American Revolution. #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #history #militaryhistory #18thcentury #rangers #robertrogers #rogersrangers #collections #museumcollections

Museum staff recently rediscovered a group of film reels in the archives. Thanks to the support of Anne Mehringer and Terry Beaty, we were able to get the film digitized. Among the reels was this video of museum co-founder Stephen H.P. Pell exploring the site in 1942. Discovering a new piece of the museum’s history is always an exciting moment for us. Getting a glimpse into what the site was like in the 1940s and seeing Stephen Pell made the moment even better.
