The Fort Ticonderoga Fort Fever Series features programs led by Fort Ticonderoga museum staff who share their latest research and cutting-edge discoveries.
For Black History Month this talk will explore the role of men of African descent in the military experience of the 18th century through the objects they made and used. Race is rarely coded into material culture, but careful research can uncover the complex realities of military artifacts from across the Atlantic Ocean in the 18th century. Join Curator Dr. Matthew Keagle to dive deeply into Fort Ticonderoga’s collections and uncover the evidence of Black hands on the Material Culture of the colonial and Revolutionary eras.
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.”
