Lake Champlain Naval History Program At Fort Ti

redoubts and batteries at Ticonderoga on Lake ChamplainFort Ticonderoga’s “Fort Fever Series” begins on Sunday, January 7, at 2 pm with “Vigilance and Discipline to be Observed through all the Vessels” presented by Nicholas Spadone, Director of Interpretation.

Fort Ticonderoga’s military history in the American Revolution extends well beyond just the land. Strategy and tactics were developed to command Lake Champlain and Lake George. British Royal Navy vessels on Lake Champlain demonstrate the strength and extent needed to attack American-held Ticonderoga as well as supply and defend Ticonderoga during British occupation. This presentation will include the design, construction, and legacy of the British Royal Navy vessels on Lake Champlain between 1775 and 1781.

Tickets to this program are $12 per person and can be purchased at the door; Fort Ticonderoga Members are admitted free of cost. The program will take place in the Mars Education Center.

Additional “Fort Fever Series” programs are scheduled February 11, March 11 and April 15.

    Wish I was closer and could attend. That area (L.Champlain and L.George) has a long and compelling history. Especially fascinating was Benedict Arnolds’ naval battle at Valcour Island in October of 1776.
