Fort Ticonderoga has announced their annual Maze by Moonlight, and the living history event “Nothing Could Exceed the Spirit and Alertness,” set for October 25th and 26th, and October 26th and 27th.
The new 2019 corn maze design features clues connected to Fort Ticonderoga’s story. The maze is divided into two phases, giving guests the chance to gain confidence in the smaller maze before tackling the main maze. The average journey takes about twenty minutes for the first phase, and up to an hour for the second phase.
During the “Nothing Could Exceed the Spirit and Alertness” event, attendees can explore the crucial moments of the Revolutionary War that are not mentioned in textbooks.
Fort Ticonderoga will recreate the tense days when the work of 13,000 American soldiers held the line against the entire British Army and fleet on Lake Champlain. Through weapon demonstrations, guided tours, living history vignettes, and a full lineup of programs, visitors can explore the events of October 1776 which were vital to securing the ultimate fate of American independence.
Fort Ticonderoga will begin its Winter Quarters season in November, launching a new schedule of programs. More information on Fort Ticonderoga is available on their website.
