Living History Event: 1776 Supplying our Army in Canada

public history staff

Step into the early days of the American Revolution as soldiers at Ticonderoga sent vital supplies to the American Army, clinging on tenuously to the siege of Quebec.

Highlighted programming throughout the day brings to life Fort Ticonderoga as a critical supply depot for the Northern Continental Army in January 1776. Watch oxen hauling sleds heaped with edible essentials and see how General Phillip Schuyler used Lake Champlain as a frozen highway to feed the Continental Army in Canada utilizing the sheer power of cattle. Meet the New York soldiers who served at Ticonderoga over the winter of 1775-76 and join them in cutting firewood or help assemble an ox sled alongside them. Tour officers’ quarters and all the comforts within to discover the challenge to convince veteran soldiers to reenlist for another campaign season. Examine the unsung work of the women that served at Ticonderoga as they mended both shirts and soldiers as active laundresses and nurses.

Appropriate footwear for undetermined weather conditions is highly recommended.

The 1776 Supplying our Army in Canada Living History Event is part of Fort Ticonderoga’s Winter Quarters lineup of activities. From now through April on select dates, visitors will be immersed in exciting living history events, engaging seminars, specialty programs, behind-the-scenes VIP Tours, and hands-on workshops.
