Living History Event: Continue in the Service…and Save their Country

Soldier on horse in front of other soldiers

Fort Ticonderoga will honor Veterans during a one-day event on November 9th where visitors will experience the American Army’s trials at Ticonderoga and reflect on the sacrifices which led to victory and independence. Highlighted programs, historic trades, weapon demonstrations, and other activities will make this a memorable event for visitors of all ages.

In addition, this day only, on display in the museum will be Charles Peale Polk’s portrait of Washington in front of Nassau Hall at Princeton, the site of his important victory. Displayed alongside Polk’s stunning portrait will be contemporary maps of New York and New Jersey, visualizing the journey of Continentals from Ticonderoga to Delaware. Two of the rare objects of Continental service will be on public display: a sergeant’s discharge and an officer’s diploma of membership in the society of the Cincinnati, both signed by their commander George Washington.

In honor of our nation’s military, veterans and active military members are welcomed FREE for this event.
