Ticonderoga Soldiers Project

The Ticonderoga Soldiers Project is the museum’s effort to document the thousands of individuals who were stationed at Fort Ticonderoga during the period of its active use from 1755 to 1783 and to meet the growing needs of a public keen to discover their family’s legacy at Ticonderoga. The project is designed to comb primary sources from the 18th century and provide firm documentation of service at Fort Ticonderoga for researchers, genealogists, and the general public interested in learning more about their family histories. Our efforts have begun by surveying Fort Ticonderoga’s own archival collections and, it is hoped, will later expand to other sources to document the estimated 45,000 soldiers and civilians from across North America, Africa, and Europe whose lives intersected with this place.
