This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a Conti This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a Continental note! Beginning in 1775, the Continental Congress began issuing its own currency. This particular note was issued in 1776 and amounted to one-third of a dollar, the reverse featuring a design created by Benjamin Franklin. This design consists of a chain of thirteen interlocking rings, representing the thirteen colonies, surrounding the phrase “we are one”: a symbol of unity for the fledgling country whose independence was declared on July 2nd, with the text of this Declaration of Independence being formally ratified by Congress on July 4th, 1776.

This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a soup This week’s #WhatIsItWednesday object is a soup tureen! This  transferware tureen features prints of various landmarks in America, including a view of Fort Ticonderoga. The image of Fort Ticonderoga’s ruins is featured on the body of the vessel, and is based on a print made by Thomas Cole, who had visited Ticonderoga in 1825. After this print was published in London in 1830, the image found its way onto numerous decorative ceramics intended for the American market. Pieces like this are part of a larger legacy that Fort Ticonderoga has held for centuries as both a historic site and scenic destination, a legacy which continues to the present day as we prepare for our reopening to regular visitation on June 30th.
