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 mid-1 This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a mid-19th century pocket watch! Fort Ticonderoga continued to be an iconic piece of the American landscape long after its abandonment and the end of the American Revolution. Images of the fort’s ruins were frequently reproduced in art and other forms of material culture, such as this gold pocket watch. The engraved image on the front cover of this watch, titled “Ruins of Ticonderoga” in French, depicts a stylized view of the ruins, indicative of the iconic status that Ticonderoga held not only domestically, but abroad as well. You can learn more about this object and see more photos through the link in bio 👆! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #museumcollections #19thcentury #pocketwatch #ruins #history #militaryhistory

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a bar s This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a bar shot! Bar shot, or "double headed shot" as it was referred to in inventories of Ticonderoga's artillery stores, tumbled towards its target, after being fired from a cannon. This spinning motion was particularly devastating against rigging, sails, masts, and other structures on ships. This particular example is thought to have been found in the vicinity of Lake Champlain, a leftover from one of the many naval ships that sailed on the lake during the American Revolution. #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #archaeology #collections #artillery #18thcentury #militaryhistory
