Defiance & Independence Re-enactment 2016

This battle re-enactment highlighted the climactic summer of 1777 bringing to life the story of the American garrison at Ticonderoga as it was outflanked, out-supplied, and out-manned by a British invasion force descending from Canada. 

The event featured two full days of exciting programs including a hot defense of the outer lines, the American retreat and British capture of the fort, and daily life in both the British and American camps.  Additional programming featured the history of chocolate at Ticonderoga in 1777 in partnership with Mars American Heritage Chocolate, who helped in part fund the event programming through a generous grant.
