Fort Ticonderoga Opens Today, May 20, 2011 for 102nd Season!

Fort Ticonderoga opens for the 102nd season today, May 20 and will offer new programs, events, exhibits, gardens and a six-acre corn maze designed in the shape of the Fort! Visitors will immerse themselves in nearly 2000 acres of exquisite landscape at Fort Ticonderoga and experience the story of how the blood spilled to create an empire in the French and Indian War resulted in the struggle for liberty and America’s independence a generation later.

Starting today, daily interpretive programs will bring to life 1759 each day at Fort Ticonderoga this season where visitors can learn to ply an 18th century trade and thrill at the pageantry of arms as historic interpreters re-create Massachusetts Provincial soldiers serving in Colonel Abijah Williard’s Regiment.

This weekend Fort Ticonderoga will host the Sixteenth Annual War College of the Seven Years’ War. This full-weekend seminar offers presentations on the most recent scholarship on the period. Reservations are required, but a few openings remain! Call 518-585-2821 for more details!
