Virtual Fort Fever Series

Cuba to Champlain: Enslavement and Empire on the Road to Independence
Dr. Matthew Keagle, Fort Ticonderoga Curator 

The Fort Ticonderoga Fort Fever Series features presentations by Fort Ticonderoga staff.

The Champlain Valley feels far from the plantation and cane fields most associated with the pernicious institution of slavery, but the region was not immune to the traffic in human lives. Join Fort Ticonderoga Curator, Dr. Matthew Keagle, to explore how 18th-century imperial warfare not only built Ticonderoga but perpetuated and expanded slavery’s reach into the continent, from the Seven Years’ War to the Eve of the Revolution.

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.
