Join Fort Ticonderoga at 1pm on Facebook Live for an overview of Fort Ticonderoga’s manuscript collection. Covering the campaigns and battles of King George’s War, the Seven Years’ War, the Revolution, and the War of 1812, Fort Ticonderoga’s manuscript collection documents the experiences of men and women in the conflicts that shaped North America. Curator Dr. Matthew Keagle gives an introduction to the range of handwritten documents preserved in Fort Ticonderoga’s collection that put a human face on the past.
Have you wondered what letters and diaries Fort Ticonderoga has in the library? Are you looking for documents to research? Send your questions to Dr. Matt and we’ll try to address them in the program.
