Add the Planting the Tree of Liberty Program to your Visit! 

In this scout 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. They learn about the training used to prepare soldiers to meet a powerful enemy, what soldiers ate, where they slept, and experience the confusion of battle. 
 
This program includes: 
 
  • Musket demonstration
  • Practicing formation tactics
  • Working with tools under supervision
  • Learning about tents and constructing a brush shelter
  • Working on fatigue duty alongside Fort Ticonderoga's interpretive Staff
Availability: This program is available at 10 am and 11:30 am, based on availability and advance reservation.  
 
Cost: General Admission + Planting the Tree of Liberty Program: $10/scout, $16/adult
 
Badges: Earn a unique Discovery Badge by completing our “Planting the Tree of Liberty." Patches are an additional $3.50.
