Planting the Tree of Liberty! 

In this scouting program, your pack or troop is immersed in the daily routine of the Continental Soldiers garrisoning Fort Ticonderoga in the weeks after the capture of Fort Ticonderoga by Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold in 1775. Scouts form a platoon of soldiers and learn teamwork and discipline as they undergo a typical day in the life of soldiers.
