Virtual Author Series

Battle of Bennington book cover

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

On August 16, 1777, General John Stark and a collection of New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and New York militia won a crucial battle near Bennington, Vermont.  By depriving British General John Burgoyne’s badly needed provisions and revitalizing the American cause, Bennington set the stage for the decisive Battle of Saratoga.

Michael P. Gabriel, the Chair of the Department of History at Kutztown University, has written three books on the Revolutionary War and one on World War II. He is the author of The Battle of Bennington: Soldiers and Civilians.

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