Fort Fever Series featuring Dr. Matthew Keagle
The Fort Fever Series is a virtual series presented by Fort Ticonderoga staff.
Join Dr. Matthew Keagle, Fort Ticonderoga Curator, to preview the 2024 special exhibition highlighting “The Power of Place.” The American Revolution and the War of Independence played out across a vast geography. The Revolution made an impact in all corners of the world, far from political centers or even the combatant nations. But the specific history and geography of places in North America like Ticonderoga channeled and condensed this revolutionary human activity. This concentrated people, actions, and events in unique ways. Geography, topography, and hydrology shaped the revolutionary struggle in profound ways that gave places far from population centers significance for political and military events that had a lasting effect on individuals and nations and whose remains can still be traced across the land to this day.
