Between the Wars: British Ticonderoga 1759-1775

For nearly 15 years, from the last campaigns of the French and Indian War to the opening of the American Revolution, the British Army held Fort Ticonderoga. This period represents the longest Fort Ticonderoga was ever held by a single nation during its active service but has received little attention historically. The post at Ticonderoga, and nearby at Crown Point, anchored English settlements in the Champlain Valley and was a visible marker of royal power amidst the growing tensions of pre-Revolutionary America.

This exhibit will examine the remains of peacetime life at Ticonderoga with manuscripts, printed material, and archeological artifacts that shed light on life at a British military post.
