On Saturday and Sunday, May 25-26, Fort Ticonderoga will pay tribute to the men and women who lost their lives to their country during the American Revolution.

Throughout the weekend, witness the labor of liberty as soldiers from the Continental Army bring to life this defining story through military drills, historic trades, and fatigue duties such as carpentry.
