Planting the Tree of Liberty
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.  Boy and Girl scouts form a platoon of soldiers, learning 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. The program is one and a half hours in length.
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
