Memorial Day 3-Day Weekend Commemoration

People marching and playing drums

Join Fort Ticonderoga to remember the service of the armed forces of the United Stated on the very grounds where so many American soldiers fought and sacrificed. Parade into Fort Ticonderoga behind the Fifes and Drums during a special program on Memorial Day and step back in time to meet the soldiers of the American Revolution. Experience all aspects of the life of the Continental Army soldier in 1777, from their weapons to their rations, and learn about what they believed would come from their sacrifice in the name of liberty. All weekend long, watch as these new soldiers in the Continental Army ply their civilian trades and help build this military outpost.
