This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a gun lock! Much like muskets and pistols of the 18th century, artillery could also utilize flintlock ignition to set off its gunpowder, becoming more common by the end of the 18th century. This carronade lock is engraved with the image of a lion holding a crown, a symbol of the East India Company. More information and images of this object can be found on our online database through the link in bio ☝️! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #18thcentury #museum #museumcollection #artillery #history #militaryhistory #19thcentury

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a mirror!

This piece once hung in the Pavilion, the Pell family’s summer home on the grounds of Fort Ticonderoga.
