This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a patten! Consisting of a wooden sole affixed to an iron ring, this object would be tied to the user’s shoes, thereby elevating their feet above the ground. These objects were primarily used by women in the 18th century in order to protect their shoes from damage and dirty surfaces. Although probably slightly later, this patten very closely resembles an archaeological pair found in the ruins of Fort Ticonderoga. This object was recently acquired by Fort Ticonderoga, look forward to finding it soon on our online database, which can be found through the link in bio ☝️! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #18thcentury #18thcenturyfashion #shoes #fashion #museum #museumcollection

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday detail comes from a flag! This wool flag served as the camp colors of the Royal Highland Emigrants, later brought into the regular British army as the 84th Regiment of Foot. This unit was organized in 1775, shortly after the outbreak of the American Revolution, and was primarily tasked with defending Canada from American invasions. A large portion of the Emigrants consisted of Scots that had fought in the Seven Years’ War, including the commander of the 1st Battalion Allan Maclean and the commander of the 2nd Battalion John Small, both of whom survived the disastrous British attempt to capture Fort Carillon in 1758. The unit’s allegiance to the British is represented on this flag, as the royal cypher of King George III is stamped in red paint above the inscription “Royl. Emigrants”. More information on this object can be found on our online database in the link in bio👆! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #18thcentury #museum #museumcollection #regiment #flag #americanrevolution #revolutionarywar #british #britain  #kinggeorgeiii

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a cap! This leather infantry cap follows the general pattern adopted by the US Army in 1813. A label on the interior identifies the maker as Robert Redfern, a Philadelphia saddler and leather cutter that held an Army contract for leather caps between 1819-1822. The crown of the cap has a silvered copper plate which has been die-struck with the image of a shielded eagle in front of a panoply of arms and beneath 13 stars and a banner which reads “E Pluribus Unum”, a motto in Latin which translates to “Out of many, one”. The finer overall construction and quality of this cap suggests that this cap may have belonged to an officer rather than an enlisted member of the military. This cap is currently on display in the exhibit “A Well Regulated Militia: Citizen, Soldier, and State”, and can also be found on our online collections database through the link in bio 👆! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #museum #museumcollection #cap #uniform #clothing #hat #militia #19thcentury

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a hand grenade! This 18th century grenade is of the type used for British land service, measuring approximately 2.77” in diameter. The hole seen in the center of this object would have originally held a fuse which would ignite the gunpowder in the hollow center, causing an explosion which would shatter the iron casing and send shrapnel into its intended target. This grenade, along with many other pieces of ammunition, was recovered during the early 20th century restoration of Fort Ticonderoga, and can be found on our online database through the link in bio 👆! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #18thcentury #museum #fort #artifact
