This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a pot lid! This 18th century copper alloy pot lid features a lift ring to more easily uncover a pot with a hook or other tool, and is also stamped with a maker’s mark. This is one of the many objects that were uncovered in the early 20th century during the restoration of Fort Ticonderoga. More images of this object and many other archaeological finds can be found on our online database through the link in bio ☝️! #TiconderogaCollections

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a mortar! Mortars are artillery pieces designed to fire projectiles in a high arc, in comparison to the relatively flat trajectory of cannon. These allowed the user to fire ordnance such as explosive shells over walls and fortifications, making mortars an ideal siege weapon. This particular bronze mortar was cast under the rule of King Louis XIV of France in the late 17th or early 18th century, and fired shells measuring just over 10 inches in diameter. More details on this particular object, as well as our artillery collection as a whole, can be found on our online database through the link in bio ☝️! #ticonderogacollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #history #militaryhistory #17thcentury #18thcentury #artillery #museumcollection

The detail for this week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object comes from a seal! Consisting of a carved carnelian stone set in a gold mounting, this object would be impressed into melted wax to seal a folded document, leaving an impression in the wax from the carved section of the stone. This would create a tamper-evident seal while at the same time identifying the sender: in this case Angelica Schuyler, daughter of Philip Schuyler and sister-in-law of Alexander Hamilton! This object is one of many that can be located on our online database, found in the link in bio ☝️! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #museum #museumcollection #18thcentury #19thcentury #angelica #schuylersisters #work #seal #letter #writing

Thomas Cole was born #OTD in 1801 in Bolton-Le-Moors, England. Cole emigrated with his family to the United States in 1818, and soon pursued work as an artist. Cole's work as an artist required him to travel frequently, enabling him to view American landscapes which he frequently depicted in his artwork, including a visit to the Ticonderoga peninsula in 1826. This visit inspired him to paint 'View near Ticonderoga' or 'Gelyna', which remains his earliest signed and dated painting. More details on this important work can now be found on our online collections database through the link in bio ☝️! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #history #museums #museumcollection #painting #paint #art #artist #landscape #19thcentury #thomascole #fineart #hudsonriverschool #adirondacks

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a belt plate! This brass plate dates to the late 18th - early 19th century and has an engraved image of a man on horseback, in military uniform, wearing a crested cap, and with one raised arm holding a sword, identifying the object as belonging to a member of a light dragoon company, most likely in the militia.
