Montcalm's Cross 2015
The two day battle reenactment held July 18-19, 2015 event tells the story of the epic 1758 Battle of Carillon. The Battle of Carillon sealed the reputation of Ticonderoga for generations to come and is recognized as the bloodiest day in North American history until the American Civil War.
The event highlighted the story of the loyal and courageous French soldiers that defended the French lines against all odds and the British and Provincial soldiers who gave their all to drive the French from the rocky peninsula and fortress of Ticonderoga. The French victory at Carillon was its greatest during the French and Indian War while the British faced their greatest defeat.
