Virtual Author Series

Hodges Scout book cover

The Fort Ticonderoga Author Series features presentations by authors of books related to Fort Ticonderoga’s history.

Len Travers talks about his new book Hodges’ Scout: A Lost Patrol of the French and Indian War. Although largely forgotten, the story of Hodges’ Scout can tell us much about this particular war as ordinary young men–those without whom wars cannot be fought–actually experienced it and for those who survived, remembered it.  Pieced together from archival records, period correspondence, and official reports, Hodges’ Scout recovers personal stories of survival, escape, homecoming, and tragedy.

Len Travers is an Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. He is the author of Celebrating the Fourth: Independence Day and the Rites of Nationalism in the Early Republic and Hodges’ Scout: A Lost Patrol of the French and Indian War.

Your participation in these online programs supports Fort Ticonderoga’s mission to preserve, educate, and provoke an active discussion about the past and its importance to present and future generations.
